Brennan clear favourite to take over from Smith at Wire

Tony Smith Warrington

Penrith Panthers assistant coach Garth Brennan has been installed as an even money favourite to become the new Coach of the Warrington Wolves when Tony Smith calls it a day at the end of the season .

After a disastrous season  Warrington finally secured their place in Super League for 2018 by winning their 1st 5 games in the middle 8 .

With safety assured Smith decided time was right to call it a day after a successful 9 years at the club where they have won 3 Challenge Cups and 2 League Leaders Shields .

Brennan has been a target for Super League clubs for a while now , and bookies Betfred think he could be the man .

He is currently the Panthers ISP Coach and has earned a place on the New Zealand coaching staff for the forthcoming World Cup .

He was 8/1 when prices were released earlier this week but his odds have now plummeted , 2nd favourites at 5/1 are early joint favourites Michael Mcguire (who is rumoured to prefer staying in Australia ) and Geoff Toovey , who have drifted from 3’s .

Jason Demetriou and David Furner are next at 6/1 with Dean Pay at 8/1 . Former player Andrew Johns is 10/1 with a 12/1 bar .
