New Wagga RSL co-coaches Ben Willis and Tom Perry hope to bring a 'fresh approach' to the job.
Wagga RSL appointed Willis and Perry as a coaching partnership to replace Neil Morton, who has stepped down after two seasons in the top job.
The pair started out together at Wagga RSL as juniors and will now take the coaching reins as the Bulldogs look to climb back up the Cricket Wagga ladder.
Willis, a right arm quick, has been back with the club for four seasons after moving back to Wagga and is looking forward to taking on the coaching role.
"I've been thinking about it since I moved back to Wagga, to be honest, just with work commitments I haven't had the time to commit. Now I've got a new job and a bit more time, I'm happy to do it," Willis said.
The Bulldogs finished on the bottom of the ladder this season, winning just two games for the year.
It came as a disappointment after the club returned to finals in 2017-18, making it through to a preliminary final.
Willis, 30, does not consider it a big task to turn things around at Wagga RSL.
"The main objective with the first grade side, we lost a lot of games by not a lot. So to close the gap a little bit and get a few more wins is the main thing," he said.
"The amount of games we lost by a couple of wickets or 20 runs, it's been quite frustrating. If you win all of them, it's not so bad.
"We're hoping to change things up and bring a fresh approach."
Willis believes the co-coaching arrangement will work well.
"We might as well utilise each other," he said.
"We can bounce ideas off each other, share the load. It's a big job, coaching seniors, and also integrating juniors into seniors as well.
"Two brains are better than one."
Perry, 30, backed up his new coaching partner.
"We started RSL juniors together at 11 so we know each other inside out," Perry said.
"The way we're looking at it. I'm also junior coordinator and coach of the under 12s so I'll look after seconds to fourth grade, and those coming up through the juniors, the link between, and Ben's predominantly first grade."
Perry will step aside from playing to concentrate on the coaching position.
He already has a successful coaching tenure under his belt with English club Alford but is looking forward to following in his father Shaun's footsteps and leading his home club.
"It's very exciting," he said.
"I wanted to continue with the club in some way. My dad's been club coach and is president now, my brother Sam has been club captain and another brother, Ethan, is playing now so it's something I really wanted to do."
Wagga RSL are open to any new players.
