A 'TAH ON THE RISE: Coonamble's Hanigan joins Super Rugby Club for 2016 season

Local Coonamble/Pilliga Ned Hannigan has been chosen in the 2016 squad

Local Coonamble/Piliga, Ned Hannigan has been chosen in the 2016 squad to represent the Waratahs this season.

Last year he played in the under 20's side and toured OS with them. After watching many games with him in it at St Josephs College, Hunters Hill it's nice to see the hard work pay off.

A great career for an outstanding sportsman.

Congratulations Ned.

From the Daily Liberal

NED Hanigan is a star on the rise.

The Coonamble boy earned Australian Schoolboys selection in 2013, and last year represented Australia at the World Rugby 20s Championships in Italy, where he was named Australia's MVP.

Now his career has soared to new heights, with Hanigan elevated into the core training squad for the NSW Waratahs just before Christmas.

"I think it was a bit surreal," he said.

"Daryl (Gibson, Waratahs head coach) called me into his office and said 'you've been training well and we want to pull you on full-time'.
