Exclusive: Ex-Warrington Wolves assistant Andrew Henderson drops future coaching hint

Andrew Henderson is currently the Head of Rugby at the Keighley Cougars.

After being pipped to the Castleford Tigers job by Lee Radford, Henderson is now taking on another type of role within the sport.

However, that hasn’t stopped the former Super League and Championship hooker from expressing the desire to step back into coaching – if it is right.

“I have a passion for coaching and I love coaching but at the same time it’s got to be the right coaching job at the right time at the right club,” Henderson told Serious About Rugby League.

“At the end of last season that right coaching role wasn’t available, but if and when the right time does present itself in the future at least I’ve covered all sorts of roles within the sport.

“One of the good things being at Keighley in the role I’m in is it’s quite flexible.

“I can combine that role with some of my media work – I work with Premier Sports and do other bits with media organisations.

“I enjoy the punditry side of stuff and I’m just in a fortunate position where I can combine the duties I have at Keighley with taking on some punditry work.”

Henderson also expressed his love for rugby league in this country and outlined his desire to stay in the UK for many years to come.

“I wouldn’t say no to it – I love rugby league an I’m very passionate about the game.

“I’m settled in the UK, I’ve no desire to return to Australia and all my family are here.

“I love British rugby league and I feel grateful to still work in various coaching roles.”

Though the former hooker loves the punditry side of things, coaching is where his heart lay.

“If there was a full-time role within punditry and media side of things I would certainly look at it but I still have a desire to coach in the future.

“That being said, I will only go back into coaching if it’s the right job.”
