Since his retirement as a Canterbury Bulldog in 2000, goal-kicking ace Daryl Halligan has been helping other kickers lift their
performances.

He is arguably the most successful rugby union and rugby league goal kicking coaches in the world.

He has also set his sights on pursuing a career as a professional coach after a very successful stint as an assistant coach with
the New Zealand All Blacks under John Mitchell.

The one-time NRL points scoring record holder (2,034 points) in recent years has been engaged by the New Zealand All Blacks,
Waikato Chiefs, Canterbury Bulldogs, Newcastle Knights, Sydney Roosters, Melbourne Storm, Cronulla Sharks and the
Queensland State of Origin team as a goal-kicking coach. Kickers who have excelled under his coaching include Andrew Johns
(Newcastle Knights), Hazem El Masri (Canterbury Bulldogs), Craig Fitzgibbon (Sydney Roosters), Brett Kimmorley (Cronulla
Sharks), Matt Orford and Cameron Smith (Melbourne Storm) and All Blacks Daniel Carter, Andrew Mehrtens, Tony Brown, Carlos
Spencer and Leon McDonald.

Kiwi-born Halligan played rugby in New Zealand before launching his rugby league career in Australia with the North Sydney
Bears and the Canterbury Bulldogs.

In his 230 games with the Bears and the Bulldogs, Halligan kicked 855 goals, four field goals and 80 tries. His success rate was a
staggering 80 per cent. In all senior matches, including 29 appearances for the New Zealand Kiwis, former Kiwi international
winger Halligan scored 2,250 points from 84 tries, 908 goals and six field goals.
