Cool-hand Thommo to take heat off Arthur

Rugby League Week - - News -

Par­ra­matta are chas­ing highly re­spected Bull­dogs of­fi­cial Alan Thomp­son to take on the vi­tal gen­eral man­ager of foot­ball role. The Eels have been comb­ing the NRL for a man to run their foot­ball op­er­a­tions and have tar­geted the ex­pe­ri­enced Thomp­son to take some of the pres­sure off coach Brad Arthur to help the Eels get back on their feet after the disas­ters of 2016. Thomp­son is a for­mer Aus­tralian Olympic swim­ming coach with vast ex­pe­ri­ence in sports ad­min­is­tra­tion. He has guided the Bull­dogs through some tough times in re­cent years and his re­cruit­ment would be a coup for the Eels.
