Head of Performance, Hayden Knowles, will depart at season's end for personal reasons. 

Knowles joined the club at the end of 2017 as part of Garth Brennan's coaching staff and made an immediate impact across the playing group. 

Due to the fact that his family remained on the Central Coast of NSW, Knowles has found it difficult juggling his professional and family life. With the importance of family his priority, he has decided to move back to be around them full-time. 

Knowles also formed part of Brad Fittler's successful NSW coaching staff throughout 2018.
