Kevin Sinfield to return to Leeds as "Director of rugby".

This is a similar title to what Peacock has at Hull KR. What do their duties entail, how does it differ from the head coach?

Isn't Peacock's role more around issues like player welfare?

As for Sinfield, I think DoR is bascially code for "Head Coach, taking on some of the responsibilities Hetherington did". Hetherington is/was a lot more involved in player performance that other CEOs probably are at other clubs.

I suspect that there is probably also a bit of clever branding by Hetherington to protect Sinfield from the sort of issues that Cunningham has at St Helens. If it all goes pear-shaped, Sinfield is merely a "man upstairs"? Lowes isn't a popular appointment and it wouldn't be hard to move him on - and I suspect Jimmy knows that.
I wish everyone would read bramleyrhino's post two or three times just to get it through some thick skulls


Mr bramleyrhino speaks a lot of sense.

His contract runs out at the end of the year. He will continue that one day a week until it runs down apparently.

Would hope so, be a conflict of interests if not!

He will continue till Autumn...

“I have enjoyed my time at the Rugby Football League and I would like to thank Brian Barwick and Ralph Rimmer for supporting my vision for the international team. I believe the national side are in a position to fulfil their potential under Wayne Bennett and I am happy to continue my work leading into the Autumn series against New Zealand to make sure there is a smooth transition to build on the successful work we have done over the last two years.

Is that a position created so that if relegated, he wouldn't be responsible for it?

So Lowes is the fall guy if things don't work out?

So, is this new "dream team" of Sinfield / Lowes just a quick fix before they appoint a high calibre coach, or is this the long term plan?
£350m a week to the N.H.S.

Fudge-it.
