Lee Briers makes absolutely massive claim about Wigan Warriors boss Matt Peet

Lee Briers has been on a brilliant coaching journey.

Last year he moved to Wigan Warriors from his beloved Warrington Wolves making a sizeable impacted as they won the Challenge Cup.

He then earnt a move to the Brisbane Broncos and has really excelled as the Broncos have climbed the table in 2023.

However, he paid huge credit to Wigan boss Matt Peet claiming he could become the best coach in the world.

“Matty brought me in and gave me the chance and the confidence to put my stamp on the Wigan attack and say this is how we are going to do it,” he said on Sky Sports.

“Matty is going to be, if not the best coach in the world, he will be right up there.

“He gave me a lot of confidence to go and test myself in Australia.”

Briers also opened up on his coaching philosophies:

“I came in just after Christmas so I have had my time to introduce my philosophy.

“My philosophy is all about support play (number one).

“It’s about energy and for me that’s the main difference is the athletes. The size and speed of their athletes. It is their national sport so they have the first pick from the pool whilst we’re third behind football and rugby union.

“The athlete is massive down there. Liam Byrne is a big middle but in the NRL he is probably an average sized backrower, they’re so big.

“It is the same IQ as over here. My job is to educate them on how to play rugby league.”
