Warrington Wolves coach heads to the NRL

Warrington Wolves have confirmed that Tyrone McCarthy will depart the club to take up an exciting opportunity in Australia at NRL side South Sydney Rabbitohs.

McCarthy made 43 appearances for the Wolves between 2009-2013 and following his retirement from the game in 2021 joined Warrington’s youth development team as Scholarship head coach and assistant for our Academy and Reserves sides. He also made a big impact on the club’s community development pathway programme in conjunction with their community coaches.

The new role down under will see him continue his great work in youth development as Pathways Coaching Director for the Rabbitohs.

The Wolves wished him well stating:

“We wish to thank Tyke for all he’s done for the Wire over the years and wish him well for his next chapter in Australia.”

Interestingly the Wolves academy is set to tour Australia so there could be a reunion sooner rather than later.

McCarthy was a Challenge Cup winner with the Wolves against Leeds Rhinos in 2012 and also played at Wembley for Hull KR in 2015 against the Rhinos.
