Michael Monaghan (born 13 May 1980) is the current pathways and specialist coach for the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles in the National Rugby League[5] and an Australian former professional rugby league footballer who played for the Canberra Raiders and Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles in the National Rugby League, and for the Warrington Wolves in the European Super League.[2][3][6]

Career[edit]

Monaghan playing for Warrington

He played with the Canberra Raiders from 2001 to 2003.[7]

Monaghan joined Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles in 2004 as halfback, but changed to hooker at the start of the 2006 season due to the purchase of halfback Matt Orford from Melbourne Storm.[6]

He played in the 2007 NRL grand final defeat by Melbourne Storm.[8]

The 27-year-old joined Manly teammate Chris Hicks in moving to Warrington Wolves for 2008's Super League XIII.[9]

In March 2009 rumours emerged linking him with his former club Canberra and playing alongside brother Joel Monaghan again.[7]

Monaghan played for Warrington in the 2009 and 2010 Challenge Cup Final victories over Huddersfield Giants and Leeds respectively, winning the Lance Todd Trophy in the former.[10] In May 2014, Monaghan announced he would be retiring at the end of the season.[11]

He then joined the Catalans Dragons as assistant coach for the 2015 season[12] and took temporary charge in 2017 with fellow assistant Jerome Guisset following the French club's decision to part company with head coach Laurent Frayssinous.

Awards[edit]
