Bradford boss Geoff Toovey admits he would be interested in becoming New South Wales head coach.

After losing another State of Origin series this year, the Blues sacked Laurie Daley and are currently looking for a replacement.

Toovey is one of the names linked with the vacancy but speaking to the Telegraph & Argus, he confirmed it is only rumours at the moment.

“It is a great job, a big challenge, and something that I would be interested in – but at the moment it is just in the papers,” he said.

After a tough time in England, Toovey is almost certain to return to Australia with the Bulls set to become a part-time team following their relegation to League 1.

Speaking last month, the 48-year-old was not sure of his next move and said he was focused on finishing the current campaign strongly.

“I’m really committed to this year and I was hoping we could get off the bottom where we were situated but that hasn’t been the case,” said Toovey.

“It has been an enjoyable year and like the players I am looking to finish on a high, but I don’t know exactly where or what I’ll be doing next year.”
