Brian with his World Champion Lightweight Four in 1985

Brian is one of the key people involved in the development of women's lightweight rowing in Australia. He took crews from an interstate standard to world class standard. He was involved with the early Canadian Henley crews which showed that Australian women's lightweight rowing was of the highest standard. He made the transition to the World Championship status and performance with an amazing record of success. His coaching skill and management of his athletes were superb. His no nonsense and demanding style got the best out of his athletes. He was also a finalist Olympic coach.

After the Olympics, Brian continued coaching at the school level. He worked with Peter Antonie to get Xavier across the line in 1999 for a Head of the River win for the first time in 50 years.
