Our UNSW Wests Magpies have done it yet again and have won the Australian Water Polo League for a third year in a row. After a nail-biting defeat of Sydney University, this was definitely a moment the team will always cherish. 

The gold medallist squad is built with UNSW current students as well as Alumni and even some Olympic legends. Congratulations to the men below: 

Current Students

Jarrod Gilchrist: (Grad Dip Psychology)

Matt Byrnes: (Commerce)

Matt Murphy: (Engineering)


Nathan Power:  Bachelor and Master of Commerce) also current Australian Team Captain

Angus Lambie: (Criminology)

Jean Luc Poidevin: (Engineering)

Michael de Gail: (Construction Management and Property)           

Josh Watkins: (Commerce)

Club Legend

Richie Campbell: 4-time Olympian

With hundreds of fans for both teams coming out, the stands were absolutely packed for the cliff-hanger of a game. However, when full-time hit, our UNSW boys were up 11-10 and were crowned victorious. 

A massive congratulations to all the coaches, managers, and staff for all of your hard work with the boys to make this dream a reality again. Three Gold medal wins in a row is remarkable.
