Smith will make Agar enquiry

Warrington Wolves coach Tony Smith has confirmed the club are interested in bringing in former Wakefield boss Richard Agar as an assistant.

The French national coach left the Wildcats on Monday after losing ground in the relegation battle to rivals Bradford Bulls. Agar went on holiday soon after the news broke, but made it clear he would be looking for another job in Super League.

“We get linked to every player and to every coach. Richard is a talented young coach who has done a fantastic job,” Smith said.

“I’d certainly make inquiries about Richard but I think it’s a bit early to make a decision on his future.”
