Former St Helens prop Luke Douglas has agreed to become captain-coach of Australian side Ballina Seagulls for 2020.

The ex-Scotland international hung up his boots from the professional game after the 2019 season, where he spent the year on loan at Championship side Leigh from St Helens.

Douglas made 263 NRL appearances for Cronulla Sharks and Gold Coast Titans between 2006-16 before joining St Helens, where he played 59 games.

He earned 10 caps for Scotland and played his last-ever professional game for the Bravehearts in the autumn as they beat Greece to qualify for the 2021 World Cup.

The 33-year-old will become captain-coach of the Seagulls for the 2020 season, who play in the Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League competition.
