The Canberra Raiders will tomorrow officially announce the signing of current North Queensland Cowboys assistant coach (and ex coach of the Belconnen Warriors), Neil Henry, to replace the outgoing Matthew Elliott from next year.
Despite having the pick of outstanding former domestic and international coaches nominating for the position, the Raiders have decided to throw a bone to one of their olde boys. However, current Cowboys coach Graeme Murray has nothing but praise for Henry – who will also be assisting Mal Meninga as an assistant coach for the Queensland Origin side.
The Raiders went down to the Bulldogs 30-12 yesterday, in what was one of their poorest performances of the past couple of seasons. A match summary is available at Foxsports.
Best of luck to Neil.
