New Rebel with a cause won't muddy the Waters

DALLAS Waters has been named as South Grafton Rebels' first grade coach for the 2014 season.

The Rebels wasted no time announcing their coaching staff just days after confirmation of the club's switch to Group 2.

Waters has been with the Lower Clarence Magpies where he famously won a premiership as captain-coach in his final game in 2009.

He has been with the Magpies in a coaching capacity since, most recently mentoring the under-18s.

Matthew Pye, son of club legend Dennis and an outstanding footballer himself, will coach the reserve grade team. Current first grader Ronald Gordon will lead the under-18s.

All coaches will work together to help bring success to the club as it faces its first season in the Group 2 competition.

As well as working together, all coaches have agreed to implement a strict "no train, no play" disciplinary system to ensure all players remain committed to the cause.

Club president Ray Taunton said he was looking forward to Waters arriving.

"Dallas is very experienced and was a very good player in his day," Taunton said.

"He is extremely professional with a clear set of goals as to where he wants to take the club."
