Former Wynnum Manly Seagulls’ Colts head coach Joe O’Callaghan has today been unveiled as South Sydney Rabbitohs’ Jersey Flegg coach for 2020.
O’Callaghan, who took the Seagulls to the Hastings Deering Colts Grand Final in 2019, takes over from Ben Rogers, who will coach South Sydney’s Canterbury Cup side.
South Sydney won their first Jersey Flegg premiership since 1978 under Rogers last season, defeating Canberra in the Grand Final.
O’Callaghan brings a wealth of experience to the Rabbitohs, having served as the head coach of the Northern Pride’s Queensland Cup side in 2015 and 2016.
In 2017, he joined Wynnum Manly as their under-20 coach and as an assistant to their Queensland Cup side.
