Warriors Ready To Pick Their New Head Coach

July 13, 2020 by

The New Zealand Warriors are reportedly closer than ever before to naming a new head coach. The next step in the process would be to narrow the list of possible names down to shortlist format, and according to a piece run by The Daily Telegraph, the list has indeed already been shortened to a remaining 5 candidates. They are Wayne Bennett (Rabbitohs), Nathan Brown (formerly with the Knights), Storm assistant Jason Ryles, Shaun Wane (former England coach), and last but by no means least, current interim Warriors head coach Todd Payten.

The panel in charge of the selection process is made up of Warriors chief executive officer Cameron George, Warriors franchise team owner Mark Robinson, chairman Rob Croot, and long-time club associate Simon Mannering.

Brown is a firm favourite in the books of many; not only because of his intense involvement with the team this year, but also, and perhaps more prominently so, because of the fact that the very same Nathan Brown had been the coach to lead the Dragons to no fewer than four National Rugby League finals.

Wayne Bennett is obviously the only other active NRL name on the head coaches shortlist. But according to another report ran by the Daily Telegraph not too long ago, Bennett told the Daily he harboured no hopes in terms of being picked, and if approached at all, that he would not accept the invitation. In fact, Bennett was quoted as saying that he’s answer would be nothing less resolute than a “straight no”.
