The Rams Training Venues are second to none, and include a mix of the Sydney Football Stadium, Granville Park and Concord Oval.

The Greater Sydney Rams have secured head coach Brian Melrose who brings extensive experience and an unwavering commitment. Brian is assisted by the very talented Senior Coach, John Manneti. The dynamic duo have already started rolling out their coaching programmes over the last few weeks.

Simonne Spooner, is the head Physio for the team, and her skills and knowledge are welcomed in keeping the team physically healthy.

Heading the Rams Media Relations, is Nicole Asgar (#SessionWithHash), who has already enabled enormous impact on our social media sites.  Posts on both Facebook and Twitter have resulted from Nicole’s very entertaining interviews with the team and management. Nicole brings years of PR and media experience with her from both Fox Sports and her very sort-after interviews with the elusive Anthony Mundine.
