Red Star Belgrade Rugby League Club would like to welcome on board Brett Davidson, our new head coach for 2019. Brett saying “It is an absolute privilege to be named Red Star coach and I’m honoured to be given the opportunity, I can’t thank Colin and the team enough for having faith in me.”

“I’ve been involved with most of the players during my time coaching the Serbian National side, so having the chance to work with them again at club level is a very exciting prospect, they are a great group of men, with a fantastic management team behind them that have taken the club to another level.”

” I’ve got some big boots to fill following from Phil Economidis, the team had an amazing domestic season, but I’m grateful that during Phil’s tenure here in Serbia I had the chance to work with him and pick his brain. He’s a hard old bastard, with a heart of gold and hopefully we can continue to live up to the expectations he set.”

” To be involved in a Challenge Cup is an unbelievable opportunity, not only for Red Star, but Serbia as a whole, also for other developing European countries, affirming there’s something to strive for. ”

” The Serbian domestic competition is improving every year, the juniors have gone from strength to strength, there is untapped talent and potential, and being involved in such a prestigious competition could be a catalyst to taking Rugby League to another level in Serbia.”
