Matt Parish firms for Wests Tigers coaching job

Matt Parish

Parish is still the favourite

Matt Parish remains firm favourite to coach Wests Tigers next season, leading a field that includes Nathan Brown , Kevin Walters and Jim Dymock .

Parish has the necessary board support to take over next season from sacked Tim Sheens .

Dymock is highly-regarded but is reluctant to leave Canterbury , where he is an assistant coach under Des Hasler . Wests Tigers have a board meeting a fortnight from today, where a sub-committee is expected to recommend Parish for the top job.

The board is likely to accept the recommendation although some at the club want the coaching vacancy filled sooner. Parish, a former Balmain player whose father Don represented Western Suburbs and Australia, is understood to have had discussions with the club. Walters, assistant coach to Craig Bellamy at premiers Melbourne , was being pushed by some at the Tigers but he is unlikely to be successful.
