Ex-Hull FC boss Brett Hodgson’s exit from new role confirmed after just months thanks to Leeds Rhinos legend

Brett Hodgson departed Hull FC at the end of last season after two years in the role.

Now Hodgson has departed another role after mere months in it thanks to a Leeds Rhinos legend.

Hodgson had big shoes to fill at Hull FC replacing Lee Radford who in 2016 ended Hull FC”s Wembley Hoodoo when they defeated Warrington 12-10.

Then in 2017 he backed it up as Hull went back-to-back as they defeated Wigan Warriors.

Hodgson initially did well with Hull in the top four early in 2021 but things derailed and it was a similar story in 2022 though not helped by injury.

Hodgson left his role at the end of the season as Tony Smith took charge after leaving Hull KR.

Hodgson then replaced former South Sydney Rabbitohs and Brisbane Broncos boss Anthony Seibold, who once pushed for the Leeds Rhinos job, as England rugby union defence coach under Eddie Jones who himself has expressed a desire to take up a job in the NRL and was previously chased by Wigan and Warrington.

As Jones left his role with the RFU it left a huge question over Hodgson’s future in the role that he only recently took on especially as Leicester Tigers boss Steve Borthwick was tipped to take over and bring in the Tigers’ defence coach Leeds Rhinos legend Kevin Sinfield which came to be after a £1 million payment.

The RFU have now confirmed Hodgson’s departure after mere months in the role alongside Danny Kerry and Matt Proudfoot.

What the future now holds for Hodgson remains unclear however it has previously been suggested he could head to the NRL which he may do.
