Former St George coach now at St Helens

During his tenure at the Dragons, he was a fan favourite, and he got along with the players. Now, former Dragons coach Nathan Brown has signed on to be the new coach of St Helens, for the next 3 years.

The deal will start next season, once his current contract with the Huddersfield Giants expires – with Eamonn McManus, the Saints Chairman saying:

We are extremely pleased that Nathan will be joining us next season. I believe he is ideally suited for the Saints both with regard to the way we want to play and as to what we aim to achieve in terms of success.

“He is still a relatively young coach but already has pedigree and experience gained over many years as a Head Coach at the highest levels both in the NRL and in Super League.”

Kieron Cunningham, who is the assistant coach at St Helens said:

The man himself is pleased to have the opportunity to work with St Helens, and looks forward to the challenges it will bring.

“It’s an honour to be appointed the Head Coach of St.Helens. They are a great and historic club and continuously associated with success; I’m relishing the challenge for next season onwards. They have a strong first team squad and more promising youngsters coming through their system, along with a great new stadium and training facility.

“That said, this season is all about Huddersfield Giants for me and it’s good to get this announcement out of the way so that I can concentrate totally on the job at hand.”
