The Canberra Nationals are pleased to announce that Natalie Hurst will take up the head coaching position for the upcoming Waratah One season, following the departure of Jenny Lonergan.

The guard who won multiple championships with the Capitals will pull down the curtain on a glittering WNBL career, retiring at season’s end. Hurst says it’s the perfect opportunity to put her own mark on a program that helped kick-start her career.
