Exclusive: Adam Cuthbertson teases coaching role as he takes up surprising new position

Leeds Rhinos v Wakefield Trinity

Adam Cuthbertson may have only just joined Leeds Rhinos for 2015, but it was the season which has been classed as the end of the ‘Golden Generation’ for the West Yorkshire club.

Kevin Sinfield, Jamie Peacock and Kylie Leuluai all left Headingley with a treble under their arms, whilst Cuthbertson was just getting started.

The rampaging forward won two Grand Finals (2015 and 2017) and two Challenge Cups (2015 and 2020) before leaving at the end of 2020 for the York City Knights.

157 appearances later and Cuthbertson had decided on a career change, dropping down a league to join the Knights in the Championship.

But, after just one season, the rampaging Aussie has now taken on another role at the club.

“I am currently commercial director at York so I’ve steered away from the performance role to join the new commercial position,” Cuthbertson told Serious About Rugby League.

“However, performance is what I’m passionate about so I’d love to get back into it.”

In saying that, the 36-year-old is open for an opportunity at any level after previously coaching the Leeds Rhinos Women’s team.

“I’m quite passionate about coaching, and it’s something I’ve always desired to do at any sort of level.

“I really enjoy coaching and mentoring people, so if that opportunity comes along in the next couple of years then it is something I would love to get involved in.”
