    I assumed he was referring to the nsw cup coach position not the the nrl assistant coach position. Haven't we already appointed our assistant coaches?

    Unless they mean as NSW Cup coach which depending on the setup could be separate to the Assistant coaches

    No official appointment of Assistants but Sandercock and Buderus seem likely

    Head Coach - Rick Stone

    Assistant Coaches - Craig Sandercock and Danny Buderus

    NSW Cup Coach - Matt Lantry

    Holden Cup Coach - TBA

    It doesn't seem that long ago that he was a junior for us.

    I don't know anything about Lantry, but i must say i'm disappointed Rip Taylor won't be back.

    Kid from Maitland who was a good junior for us, poached by Parra where he made it as far as reserve grade before coming back to the Knights in the Smith years, but I don't think he got much of a go in reserve grade. Since then he has been doing stuff with the juniors as an assistant coach and development officer, and this year he was coach of the year in the real NRL after recruiting a lot of Knights juniors to Central Charlestown and taking them to 4th I think.
    He played with guys like Pat Richards at Parra.
    One thing that seems odd is that he is a few years younger than Clint Newton and would have a lot less football experience than Clint - so it would be a funny coach/captain relationship.
