The Buildcorp Wallaroos Head Coach, Dwayne Nestor has always had Rugby as a passion in his life, first getting a taste for it at Rugby nursery, St Joseph’s College Hunters Hill in Sydney. Now calling Perth home, Nestor has been a part of the WA pathway for more than a decade, working with the Western Force, junior representative teams and at a club level with Cottesloe Rugby Club.
In 2016, as Head Coach of the Perth Spirit, Nestor coached the side to win the National Rugby Championship, establishing himself as an elite level pathways coach. In 2017, Nestor was added to the coaching staff of the Buildcorp Wallaroos for the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup where the side finished in sixth position having defeated tournament hosts Ireland in the fifth place semi-final but ultimately fell to Canada in the battle for fifth.
In 2018, Nestor was named as the new Head Coach of the Buildcorp Wallaroos, taking over from Paul Verrell. In that year Australia played their first ever trans-Tasman double header on Australian soil, with the Buildcorp Wallaroos and the Qantas Wallabies playing at ANZ Stadium in Sydney, sharing the stage for the first time.
Outside of his Rugby duties, Nestor is a performance coach with SiSu Life an organisation focusing on a high-performance mindset, developing mental and physical strength for individual, team and organisational success.
Nestor is incredibly passionate about the Buildcorp Wallaroos and about the success of Women’s Rugby on a domestic and International stage.
