Exclusive: Ex-Huddersfield Giants boss Paul Anderson set to leave Warrington Wolves for surprising new role

Paul Anderson will be leaving the Warrington Wolves to take up a new role elsewhere.

The former Huddersfield Giants head coach has been in charge of the Wolves’ under-19s since joining back in 2018, but also coaches the England Knights.

The former Bradford and St Helens prop is best known for being part of both the Bulls’ and Saints’ ‘Golden Eras’ in the noughties, helping Bradford to Grand Final success in 2001 and 2003 (the latter in which he won the treble) and then playing a key role in Saints’ treble-winning triumph in 2006.

After hanging up his boots, Anderson made the switch to coaching, steering Huddersfield to their first-ever League Leaders’ Shield in 2013 after initially taking the reins as assistant coach to Jon Sharp and later Nathan Brown.

Anderson then took over from Brown in July 2012 and, in his first full season, led Giants to top spot – the first time they had finished top of the table since 1932.

After taking over as under-19s boss at Warrington in 2018, the 50-year-old is now set to take up a role at the RFL.

When contacted by Serious About Rugby League, an RFL spokesman confirmed that there will be two new appointments to the player pathway role in the men’s and women’s game, with Anderson’s name briefly mentioned and an announcement expected early this week.
