Travis Milburn, pictured here with his sons Brock and Beau. Travis and his family are valued members of our Brothers family, and we love that Brock and Beau’s games are supported by a troop of grandparents, family friends and even their great grandmother there to cheer them on. Trav is as cool as a cucumber 😎 and a mad keen fisherman 🎣, a great catch for Brothers Sunshine Coast. 😉 😉 Catch…get it? 😆
What’s your background in rugby?
I’ve never actually played rugby, this is my second year coaching at Brothers.
When did you get involved with Brothers Sunshine Coast?
2017, Brock started in under 6s. We accidentally discovered rugby when the sign on for soccer had already been filled. Haha. Now we love it with a passion.
What do you love about your team?
I have coached the under 7s and I love how much they progressed. Our little team are on fire at the moment and it gives me goosebumps to be out on the field with them when they play.
What’s the best thing about our club?
I love that Brothers have a great all round atmosphere and everyone feels like family.
When you’re not coaching Rugby, what else do you get up to? I love fishing!
Which team do you support?
I’m not a sport watcher but I absolutely love watching my two boys play. Makes me so proud to be a dad!
Favourite Dessert? Ice Cream!
Thanks for being an awesome coach, Travis. We’re so glad you missed out on soccer sign on, and discovered Brothers. It’s great having you on our team!


Under 9 coach and all round nice guy, Adam Myers. When not coaching his son in U9’s, he can always be seen and heard on the sidelines of the U11’s games. Never short of an encouraging word and a cheeky comment or two.
Pictured with sons Ollie and Max (we’ll recruit Paige next year 😉).
What’s your background in rugby? Started dating a girl from a private high school (2005) and wasn’t allowed in her house until until I could hold a conversation about rugby at the dinner table (true story)
When did you get involved with Brothers Sunshine Coast? 2019
What do you love about your team? They want to learn. And the spread of different schools they go to it’s great to see how they all get along.
What’s the best thing about our club?
Always pushing that the most important thing is how you play the game not whether you win or lose.
When you’re not coaching Rugby, what else do you get up to? Unfortunately work takes up a lot of my spare time.
Which team do you support?
Started with the Western force then became a Waratah member for a few seasons but now a Reds supporter.
Favorite Dessert?
Milton Mangos.


Jay is Mr Cool, with one of the most energetic teams in the club, yet nothing phases him. He plays to the boys’ strengths and this is testament to the team’s success, with an almost unbeaten season for U8’s. Well done Jay and team!

What’s your rugby background?
Halfback for Oakhill College and also Eastwood (The Woodies!) in Sydney, way back when I was fit and could do the 100 metres in less than 2 minutes.
When did you get involved with Brothers Sunshine Coast?
We were looking for a club to take in the boys mid-season after moving up from Brisbane. Lucas and Paul were so welcoming that it was Brothers for us.
What do you love about your team?
Everything! The enthusiasm of the group and the fact they think it’s funny when I get cranky with them. When a plan comes together on the field it’s brilliant! It’s a pleasure to see the kids growing up over the years as well as it is in welcoming new faces.
What’s the best thing about our club?
The family feel to it. The community of backgrounds and cultures. The support.
When you’re not coaching Rugby, what else do you get up to?
Nothing beats hanging out with my boys.
Which team do you support?
None really, I’m more of a supporter of the sport itself. If we went down to Ballymore or Suncorp, we’d be going for the Reds. But there’s still a residual hangover for the Waratahs as that’s where I grew up. Saying that, I followed the Brumbies for years because I liked their style and liked their halfback. (George Gregan).
Favorite Dessert?
I don’t have a sweet tooth so skip dessert. But I do like a Galliano or Amaretto.
Thanks for your time and effort put in to coaching Jay! We really appreciate it!
