Super League coach of the year Mick Potter has expressed an interest in the vacant Wests Tigers job after returning home to Australia.
Potter, who was yesterday voted the best coach in Super League by his peers at rival clubs after his efforts with the Bradford this year, turned down an offer from the Bulls’ new owners and wants a job in the NRL.
While yet to speak to anyone at the Tigers since the club decided last week to move Tim Sheens into a different role, Potter said he would be keen to do so if there was a chance he could get the coaching job.
After seven years in charge of the Catalan Dragons, St Helens RLFC and Bradford Bulls, Potter feels he has something to offer as an NRL coach but would consider an assistant’s role.
Parramatta Eels bound assistant Matt Parish, Sydney Roosters under-20s coach Jason Taylor and Melbourne Storm deputy Kevin Walters have also been linked to the job.
