Giltinis General Manager Adam Freier has been immersed in rugby at every level across more than two decades.

He successfully brought his unique skill set and perspective to the job at the Giltinis in 2021 and is throwing his work ethic behind a big 2022 follow-up to the Championship triumph.

As a hooker, he played at the highest level in 25 Tests for the Wallabies, including the 2007 Rugby World Cup, and in more than 100 Super Rugby games across three clubs.

He also savoured everything amateur rugby stands for by playing until he was 40 in 2020 with the famous Randwick Rugby Club in Sydney.

As a Rugby Australia executive, he played a significant role across Marketing, Digital, Media/Communications and Community rugby.

He also understands the player viewpoint as a former president of Australia’s Rugby Union Players’ Association (RUPA).

He is passionate about lifting the entertainment value of rugby for fans by engaging, innovating, thinking outside the box…and playing a winning style.

Partnering with such an iconic arena as the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum was a bold statement of how high Freier wants rugby to fly in one of the great sports cities of the world.

Freier wants the Giltinis to also play a strong role in LA’s established rugby community and help nurture the next generation of American rugby players through youth and development programs.
