The Ipswich Jets have great delight in confirming our Coaching staff for our Hastings Deering Colts,
Under 19 Womens, Mal Meninga Cup and Cyril Connell Challenge.

The Ipswich Jets welcome Sinave Faitala-Mariner, as our new 2023 Head Coach for our Hastings
Deering Colts, who will be assisted by Alex Gemmell.

Sinave who has fourteen years of previous coaching experience working with players from under 16’s
through to A Grade BRL, has been as an Assistant Coach within the QRL Colts State-wide
competitions, and Head Coach of the Samoan QLD Open Men’s rugby league team.

Alex, our 2023 Colts Assistant Coach, has been playing rugby league since he was 9 and has been
coaching since 2005, working most recently with Sinave with the Samoan QLD Open Men’s rugby
league team.

Sinave commented, “I am excited for the opportunity to part of a great Club that has a rich and
successful history in the Qld rugby league. I am excited to share my experience to work towards a
common goal for the future direction and pathways for the local players.”

Alex added, “I’m delighted, to work with the Club steeped in QRL history, continue the progress that
the Colts have achieved in the last two seasons, and further teach and learn from the young men
coming through the grade onto bigger and better opportunities in football and in life.”

Sinave joins our returning 2022 Head Coaches who will be continuing in 2023.
