He's Wayne Bennett's assistant at the Broncos.

Basically took Keighley up to the Championship in his first season then went to Australia to coach Northern Pride in the Queensland Cup. During his two seasons at the Pride, he won won back-to-back minor premierships. Then he joined North Queensland Cowboys as assistant coach and they won the Grand Final in 2015. Now Bennett's right hand man at the Broncos.

He's probably the highest regarded young coach in the game.


Thanks.

Seems the sort of person we should be targeting - I just don't think we have much hope attracting an experienced coach over.

His links to the UK could be good too, may be less likely to want a top job in the NRL...?

I really hope it's Brennan, he seems to be held in VERY high regard by other coaches, players and pundits.

Saw that, but I'd be interested to know why the Giants went with Rick Stone over him.

It's Brennan.
Hiku released so he doesn't have to play under him. The family issue excuse is bollox.

His lack of first grade experience concerns me, it one thing to support others, another to be in charge yourself.

Having read up about him he would seem ideal for us and I really hope this is true.

Why wouldn't Hiku want to play under him - or have I missed something???

Personally I know nothing about him, but he sounds as though he would fit the bill. Up and coming coach happy to get 2-3 years experience in the Uk before returning to get a head coach job down under. I like the bit where it says he is particularly hard working and good at bringing on the younger players.

So it would be an 'unproven' coach to some extent, but if he were to implement a number of the basic requirements of any NRL based team I am sure we would benefit enormously. Not sure where the free flowing attractive rugby comes in. Do any of the NRL watchers know if he encourages open play, or is he one of the 'hunt the error' coaches ?
