Brett Hodgson has landed an exciting new role.
The 2009 Man of Steel winner spent time with Huddersfield Giants and Warrington Wolves in Super League adding a Challenge Cup Final win to his list of accolades in 2012 which already included NRL Grand Final glory in 2005.
After retirement he made waves in Super League again with Hull FC as their head coach.
After Lee Radford has been relieved of his duties in 2020 just before the pandemic Hodgson took charge going into 2021.
After a strong start in his first season, injuries and a bad run of form saw the side miss out on the playoffs and it was a similar case in 2022.
A final league game defeat in the Hull derby against Hull KR playing with 16 men proved to be his final game as he left the club after the loss by mutual consent despite overseeing much of the club’s recruitment for 2023.
Tony Smith has since taken the reigns at the MKM Stadium adding Jake Clifford to the squad he inherited from Hodgson.
Hodgson now joins England rugby union alongside coach Eddie Jones as he takes on an exciting new role as defence coach.
This comes after previous defence coach Anthony Seibold left the role to join Manly Sea w which was confirmed today.
