Sandercock back to assist Newcastle Knights

Former Hull Kingston Rovers coach Craig Sandercock has made a return to former club Newcastle Knights, returning to his old role of assistant coach with the club.

Sandercock was assistant at the Knights previously, before moving to England to take up the head coaching role vacated by Justin Morgan at Rovers. However, he left the club after three years in charge during the 2014 season, eventually being replaced himself by Chris Chester.

But Sandercock will now return to the NRL and assist coach Rick Stone, returning the role he had previously held before his stint in Super League. He did however, admit that his time in Super League was a great experience and hugely beneficial for his career.

“It was a really good experience,” Sandercock told Knights TV.

“It’s a bit different over there but it was a massive learning curve for me and hopefully I’ve brought a few little things back here to the Knights.”
