Albury Thunder has appointed Robbie Byatt as coach.
The rugged utility replaces favourite son Adrian Purtell, who was diagnosed with stage two Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma earlier this year.
"Robbie's coached before and he's got a wealth of experience at a number of clubs," president Rick O'Connell said.
Tough forward Jon Huggett will be Byatt's assistant.
