Reports – Saints to swoop for former Fax coach

Following the departure of assistant coach Sean Long to rugby union, St Helens are reportedly close to announcing his replacement.

Halifax Courier is reporting that former Halifax coach Richard Marshall, who left his role as the coach of the Championship club in April, is expected to be unveiled as Long’s successor.

Marshall spent four and a half years in charge at ‘Fax as head coach and has been linked with a possible move to Hull KR and Leeds as an assistant, but his destination now appears to be with the current Super League league leaders with an announcement expected soon.
