There will be three new NRL coaches taking the helm in 2018.
Nineteen years ago Dean Pay made his debut at Belmore as a prop. His career has now gone full circle as he hopes to restore the Blue and White to being the family club. He has been recruited from Canberra where he was the understudy to Ricky Stuart.
Garth Brennan comes to the Gold Coast Titans with an excellent record in the lower grades at the Newcastle Knights and Penrith, recently taking the Panthers Intrust NSW Premiership side to victory in the Grand Final.
Anthony Seibold becomes head-coach at South Sydney after stints as assistant coach to Craig Bellamy at the Melbourne Storm and with the Queensland Maroons State of Origin side. Can he find something in the Bunnies that Michael Maguire couldn’t over the last few seasons?
We ask the question, which of these coaches is likely to have their side finish higher on the ladder in their debut season?
