Eddie and Stevo reveal who they would choose as the next Leeds Rhinos boss following Richard Agar’s departure

The name Danny Ward has been mentioned, so has Danny McGuire, whilst Ryan Carr and James Webster have also been touted as the next in line for the Leeds Rhinos job.

Whilst the Daily Telegraph Down Under believes the favourite is former Featherstone Rovers head coach Ryan Carr, the bookies are telling a different story.

Tony Smith is now the lead favourite at 5/2 with Danny Ward close behind at 7/2.

Ryan Carr is at 5/1 as is former Brisbane Broncos boss Anthony Seibold, with Shane Flanagan – the former Cronulla Sharks head coach who was rumoured with Leeds last year – at 6/1.

Even former Warrington Wolves hooker Michael Monaghan is priced at 8/1 and Penrith Panthers assistant coach Cameron Ciraldo at 10/1.

Meanwhile, Jamie Jones-Buchanan is at 12/1, but James Webster and Danny McGuire sit down the table at 16/1.

However, for legendary pundits Eddie Hemmings and Mike ‘Stevo’ Stephenson, they want Carr.

“I think you would have to say spot on mainly due to the fact that they need a new voice and he’s certainly a new voice,” Stevo said.

“He has got a damn fine CV and it wouldn’t surprise me if they go for him.”

“Ryan Carr is certainly the hot tip in Australia,” Hemmings said.
