Trading Positions 2.0

In 2018, Jake Gordon went from pivotal player to champion coach. This year on Trading Positions we’re giving him an even greater challenge.

We’re pitting him against fellow Waratahs star Ned Hanigan and asking once again for the boys to trade positions into the world of coaching. However whilst Ned will coach a team of young superstar Gen Blue players, Jake will have the tougher task of coaching a non-professional team of contenders.

Can Jake rally a team who has never played together before around a strategy? Can the team of amateurs give the professionals a good game? With the right coaching can anyone succeed?

We follow the journey of both coaches before they come together in a competitive match. With everything stacked against him will Jake still be a master at Trading Positions?

About NSW Waratahs

With a history stretching back 144 years, the NSW Waratahs, or 'Tahs' as they are affectionately known as, are the oldest provincial rugby body in the southern hemisphere and one of Australia's most seminal rugby teams, representing the State of New South Wales in the annual Super Rugby competition.

The NSW Waratahs were crowned Super Rugby champions in 2014 after beating the Crusaders in a thrilling final at ANZ Stadium in Sydney. A year later the NSW Waratahs finished second behind eventual winners, the Highlanders of New Zealand.
