What’s your best tip for players?

Train hard in all aspects of the game and practice drills correctly is the simplest advice I can give to improve in water polo. It is a very physically demanding sport so fitness plays a huge part. It is also an extremely skilful sport so fitness alone will not make you a good player, you must also devote a lot of time to practice ball skills and positional play in order to get the most out of your game.

What have been your water polo career highlights?

Winning Grand Finals when your team wasn’t supposed to is always rewarding when you can put all the practice into action and it comes off on the night. Playing for Australia against Russia was such an experience as Russia were the world champions at the time. We only won one game in a 5 game series however it was the first time an Australian team had beaten them so that was rewarding.

What’s your best tip for players?

Perfect the egg-beater kick; work hard on giving a good pass in all circumstances; when in doubt, attack up the right.

What have been your water polo career highlights?

The occasional grand final win over the years both as a coach and a player. A Silver in the Australian Masters with Ryde Water Polo old dudes. Playing in a club where the members are really great people.

What’s your best tip for players?

My best tip for players would be to never give up, keep trying whether it be never give up going for the ball or never give up swimming.

What have been your water polo career highlights?

My water polo career highlight would have been going to Under18’s nationals when I was 16 and winning the competition.
