San­der­cock thought to be Rovers tar­get

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - Sport -

Lit­tle-known Aus­tralian Craig San­der­cock has emerged as favourite to land the coach­ing va­cancy at Hull KR.

The job was ex­pected to go to former Can­ter­bury Bull­dogs coach Kevin Moore, who headed a five-strong short list of can­di­dates in­ter­viewed in Aus­tralia by Rovers’ three-man del­e­ga­tion this week.

How­ever, New­cas­tle Knights as­sis­tant San­der­cock is thought to have agreed a two-year deal to se­cure his first po­si­tion as head coach in suc­ces­sion to Justin Mor­gan. The Su­per League club de­clined to com­ment but are ex­pected to an­nounce their new man next week.

San­der­cock spent two years at the Knights as un­der­study to Rick Stone but was not re­tained by new coach Wayne Ben­nett.

He joined the Knights two years ago af­ter work­ing with the Manly Sea Ea­gles ju­niors and also coached the New South Wales’ Un­der-16s in 2008 and 2009.

A qual­i­fied eco­nomics teacher, San­der­cock played in the lower grades with North Syd­ney Bears be­fore spend­ing a year in Eng­land with the Lon­don Bron­cos.
