Nathan Brown will likely be loved by both St Helens and Huddersfield Giants supporters.
Taking over at Huddersfield, he oversaw the Giants second highest ever Super League finish in his first season and guided them to the Challenge Cup Final.
After sustaining them as a top six side for three and a half seasons, he moved onto St Helens leaving the Giants on the cusp of glory as Paul Anderson turned them into League Leaders in 2013.
Meanwhile, Nathan Brown’s two year stint with the Saints saw him end their eight year wait for Grand Final glory in 2014 against Wigan in his last game with the club before he headed onto the NRL.
However, Brown is now without a club headed into 2023, but the saga surrounding a former Leeds Rhinos coaching target has left the door open for him to take on an exciting new role.
That role is St George Illawarra Dragons’ Head of Recruitment which has been left vacant by Cronulla Sharks’ Premiership winning coach of 2016 Shane Flanagan who has been linked with the Headingley hotseat on more than one occasion.
However, Brown recently took up a role with the Parramatta Eels. He had spoken to the Dragons before taking up a role with the Eels, but at that stage Flanagan was still in his position.
His close bounds at the Dragons would mean he’d likely love to take this position, but there’s plenty of red tape in the way.
