Pohla heads to Hunter in search of premiership then a professional rugby gig

Alex Pohla was the breakout star of the 2022 Shute Shield competition and he did most of his damage last year playing with a broken knuckle.

The outside centre is no stranger to injury though.

The 25-year old played just 10 matches in four years from the age of 20 and is now desperate to make up for lost time.

After a number of seasons at Gordon, Pohla has linked with Scott Coleman’s Hunter Wildfires for the 2023 season and seems confident his best rugby is still ahead of him.

“I live and work on the Central Coast so after a few years of driving down to Sydney three times a week, I couldn’t turn down the chance to train and play closer to home,” he told Rugby News.

“I love Gordon and everyone there, but it was the right decision for me.”

Pohla’s rugby tale is nothing short of remarkable.
