Experienced coach Justin Morgan has today been confirmed to lead the Kiwi Ferns through to the 2021 Women’s Rugby League World Cup.
The 43-year-old former Parramatta, Canberra and New Zealand Warriors forward takes on the role after assisting the Kiwi Ferns with their preparation for last year’s one-off Test against the Australian Jillaroos.
“Justin is the ideal coach to lead us forward and develop, not only our female players, but the coaching and support staff that will be involved in the Kiwi Ferns” NZRL high performance manager Motu Tony said.
“The 2021 World Cup is an opportunity to add to our three World Cup wins (2000, 2005 and 2008) and regain our status as the best international women’s team in the world,” he said.
Morgan previously spent seven seasons with Hull Kingston Rovers from 2005-2011. He has also been an assistant coach with Canberra, Melbourne and the Warriors as well as the New Zealand Kiwis.
