Seibold lands Souths job

Former South Wales Scorpions head coach Anthony Seibold has been named head coach of NRL side South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Seibold, 42, played for Hull KR and London Broncos and served as assistant coach at Crusaders during his time in the UK, before leading the Scorpions to the play-offs in their first ever season back in 2010.

He has since been back Down Under working in the Queensland Cup, and also being assistant at Melbourne, Manly and Souths.

The Australian succeeds Michael Maguire in the role, after he parted company with the club earlier this week.

Seibold said: “To become a Head Coach at a quality NRL club has been my career goal since I got into coaching and to have this opportunity to lead the team here at South Sydney is something I’m very proud of.

“‘Madge’ (Michael Maguire) has done a great job over the past six years, he’s left the Club in fantastic shape, and I’m looking to build on his legacy. We’ll also work hard on taking the team in a new direction with the help of the support team, the coaches and the players.

“I’m really excited about what’s ahead and I can’t wait to get stuck into the job and welcome the players back to training in November.”
