Mike Rush and Keiron Cunningham favourites for Saints job

Last week it was revealed that St Helens coach Nathan Brown will leave the club at the end of the season and return home to Australia.

The 41-year-old, who also enjoyed a successful spell in charge of Huddersfield, cited family reasons for his departure.

Since the announcement, there has been much speculation about who will succeed Brown after this weekend’s Grand Final. But who actually has a chance of taking over at Langtree Park?

The latest odds on the William Hill website make for interesting reading.

Indeed, did you know that current Saints CEO Mike Rush is currently third favourite to take the job at a short 10/1? No, me neither.
