Merrin tips next Leeds boss, but admits it’s not his call

Leeds Trent Merrin has given his opinion on who should be the next permanent Rhinos head coach.

The Australian has backed interim boss Richard Agar to remain in the role, but admits that decisions like this one are out of the players’ hands.

He told’s Aaron Bower: “Anyone that can step into chaos like he has and get us playing the way he has is a great coach in my eyes. I don’t see why not – but I’m not the CEO at the end of the day.

“He’s done a tremendous job and if anything, he does deserve that crack. But again, that’s not my decision.”
