Another club make their move for Justin Holbrook

All across Super League with Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves, Hull FC in fact every club has a top notch coach.

At Castleford Tigers Andy Last is doing his best to rebuild the club whilst Mark Applegarth kept ploughing ahead when things weren’t great at Wakefield Trinity.

Ian Watson and Paul Rowley at Huddersfield Giants and Salford Red Devils respectively have great experience and build projects.

Hull KR’s Willie Peters and Leeds’ Rohan Smith are emerging as great coaches from down under whilst Matt Peet and Paul Wellens are the next great English coaches whilst Daryl Powell, Steve McNamara and Tony Smith have been around the block again and again.

And we cannot forget the brilliant job Adrian Lam is doing at Leigh Leopards.

However, plenty of these coaches have been under pressure this year.

In June though it was Rohan Smith, Powell and Watson under pressure so when Justin Holbrook became available it wasn’t a surprise to see Jenna Brooks link all three to the former St Helens coach after his Gold Coast Titans exit.

Warrington denied the links whilst Huddersfield said they were “dismayed and totally furious” with the “malicious rumours.”

Rohan Smith meanwhile responded with three wins in a row.

Now though the Daily Telegraph has reported that two Super League clubs have also “sounded out” the former Saints boss.

Who these clubs are remains unknown.

Now though there are reports that two NRL clubs have made their move for Holbrook.

These are the Wests Tigers and Canterbury Bulldogs. The Tigers are led by Tim Sheens but the plan is for Benji Marshall to take over.

Holbrook is being seen as a plan B.

As for Canterbury, Phil Gould has had talks with him even though Cameron Ciraldo is currently in the role.

Now St George Illawarra Dragons have joined the race with the club approaching him as a potential assistant to Shane Flanagan.

So could Holbrook go from the Saints of England to the Saints of Australia.

Thus it seems, despite being “sounded out” by two Super League clubs, he won’t be back in the UK.
