Dylan Pietsch re-signs with NSW Waratahs

The NSW Waratahs have confirmed the re-signing of winger Dylan Pietsch on a two-year extension.Pietsch had a breakout 2022 campaign after making the move from the Sevens program, awarded the Chris Whittaker Medal as Rookie of the Year, scoring five tries in 15 games for the club.The 24-year-old's strong form was rewarded with selection for Australia A in the second half of the year for the Pacific Nations Cup and the tour of Japan“The past 12 months have been the best and most enjoyable in my career on and off the field,” Pietsch said in a statement. “I couldn’t have asked for a better debut season in Super Rugby, we’ve got an extremely tight group here and played some good footy off the back of it. I feel we’re building genuine depth across the park and it’s exciting to think about what we can achieve in the next few years.  “I honestly believe we have the best coaching staff in the competition – they’re very detailed orientated but create an environment where everyone connects well and pushes each other to better, which is the best thing you can have.“I feel because of this I was able to adapt and progress so much in a year, so I can’t wait to see what can happen over the next years.“I honestly didn’t want to look anywhere else because I love it here.”The deal will ensure Pietsch remains in the sky blue until the end of 2025, delighting coach Darren Coleman.“We’re excited that Dylan has re-committed to the team, he had a breakout back end of the season last year culminating in his selection in the Australia A program,” Coleman added.“He’s working hard to become more well-rounded in his game, and when he matches that up with his speed, power, and evasion, he has all the tools to become a long-time Waratah.“The Australia A program was great for him and even watching him now in our pre-season he’s becoming more complete as a back three player – he’s more comfortable and confident, and when he’s confident, his athletic ability takes over and he can be a real handful.” Click Here: kerry gaa jerseys
