RUGBY LEAGUE: Tweed Seagulls coach Kelvin Wright has accepted a new role as the coach of the Brisbane Broncos women's side.

Wright will be in charge of the Brisbane club who won the inaugural NRLW competition last year.

Wright will take over from Paul Dyer who has stepped down as coach to focus on game development within the club.

Wright said he was excited to take the reins of the Broncos for the season which begins after Tweed's campaign in the SEQ Division One.

"It is obviously very exciting,” Wright said.

"The women's game in rugby league has been around for a long time but it hasn't been given the resources and the funding around it.

"It is a really exciting time for the game because there are so many opportunities for both players and staff.”

The Tweed Seagulls boss said he has been very pleased with the improvement from his side since the start of the season.

An impressive win over Burleigh was followed up with a tough loss to Ipswich, although the Tweed side showed they can match it with the top sides week to week.

"After playing Burleigh and Ipswich we are more consistent in what we are doing,” Wright said.

"A lot of the players have still only played a handful of games.

"We are a little bit further ahead of where I thought we would be skill wise which is good.”

The Seagulls have the bye this weekend before their next match against Souths Logan at Piggabeen on Saturday, May 25.
