ODDS: Rowley and McNamara two favourites for Hull KR job

Paul Rowley has unsurprisingly been installed as the overwhelming favourite to become the next coach of Hull Kingston Rovers – with former England coach Steve McNamara just behind him.

Rowley is the 5/6 favourite with leading bookmaker SkyBet, with McNamara a 4/1 shout. Rowley is also favourite with Ladbrokes, with McNamara just behind him.

McNamara is of course still in employment with Sydney Roosters despite leaving the England position, where he works as an assistant to former Catalans coach Trent Robinson.

There are other interesting names further down the list – including Hull KR’s very own head of rugby, Jamie Peacock. He is priced at 16/1 to be the next man in charge at the Robins.
