Hull KR assistant coach Danny McGuire speaks on his future following Tony Smith’s departure

Tony Smith will not be at Craven Park in 2023 after announcing his departure back in April.

He revealed that news in a press conference with Willie Peters coming in as the new head coach next season.

For current assistant coach Danny McGuire, however, he doesn’t know where his future lies beyond 2022 – although he wants to stay.

“I’m not sure what I am doing after this year yet but Willie played over here in Wigan during the early 2000s and by all accounts he is a fantastic person he has earned his apprenticeship in the NRL,” McGuire told Sky Sports.

“I do want to stay at Hull KR – the club has been on a journey.

“When i first got there it was a bit of a mess but the club is in good hands with Paul (Lakin) the CEO and Neil (Hudgell) the owner.

“There’s been good steps and I’d love to be a part of that going forward.”

McGuire emphasised that Super League clubs are not going to be able to attract huge names to the competition.

“We are not going to get the Wayne Bennetts and Craig Bellamys in this country, but there are some fantastic coaches in this country that we don’t want to overlook either.”
