Hull KR announce new assistant

 New Hull KR CEO Paul Lakin has announced Head of Recruitment Danny McGuire will be taking up a coaching role as assistant to Tony Smith.

After hanging up his boots following the 2019 season, McGuire took up the off-field role, which he will continue to do in his new role.

McGuire said: “I can’t wait. I was doing some coaching with the Academy and Scholars and I absolutely loved it. Once you’ve been in that environment on the field and then step away from it to an office I missed it, I felt like I’ve got something coaching wise to give back.

“We’ve got some really good young lads. If you look at the spine that we could have for the next five years plus – Jez Litten, Will Dagger, Rowan Milnes, Mikey Lewis – then you throw in the experience with Adam Quinlan, Matt Parcell and others, it really excites me.

“I’m going to do the recruitment alongside Paul (Lakin) the new CEO, and Tony (Smith). I’ve still got loads to give there, I’m still going to give all I can to help with the academy as well.”
