Kevvie backs Henry at Titans
QUEENSLAND coach Kevin Walters has ruled out any interest in the Gold Coast job and has lashed Titans players for leaving besieged Neil Henry in the firing line.
Walters has not given up hope of one day launching his career as an NRL club coach, but he says the Queensland side is his sole priority. He has urged Titans hierarchy not to make Henry a scapegoat.
As a Queensland legend, Walters would be the perfect fit for the Titans but the Maroons coach has backed Henry, a former Origin assistant to Mal Meninga, to resurrect the club.
“I would like to coach in the NRL one day, but I don’t think that time is now,” he told the Queenslanders Only program on Fox League last night.
“There is more work I have to do with the Queensland side with the transition of some of our players. There’s no position ( at the Titans) and I hope the Coast stick by Neil. The last two years have been injury- riddled for the Titans and his assistants Terry Matterson and Craig Hodges are good staff.”
Walters challenged the Titans senior leadership to take responsibility for their performances. “With the Queensland team, the leaders take ownership of the team. They can’t leave the coach holding the can,” he said.
