Former St George Illawarra coach Steve Price is eyeing a return to Australia in hope of securing a new coaching position following his tenure with Super League outfit Warrington, per The Daily Telegraph.

Price is set to step aside from his duties with the Wolves at the end of the season and will now look to return down under.

The 43-year-old managed the Dragons for three seasons before departing the club in 2014 before moving on to work under Shane Flanagan in Cronulla's premiership-winning side two years later.

Price joined Warrington in 2018 on a two-year deal and has won a Challenge Cup Final whilst also reaching the Super League Grand Final during his spell with the Wolves so far.

“Former Dragons coach Steve Price has announced he will leave Warrington at the end of the season,” The Telegraph's Michael Carayannis said on 1170 SEN.

“He’s been there for four or five years now after he was part of Cronulla’s coaching staff having left the Dragons.

“He won a Challenge Cup over there, but he’s going to see the season out, then come back to Australia and hopefully find a job in the NRL next year.”

With an overwhelming amount of coaching changeover last season, NRL club's will be hoping to back in their current head coaches in a conservative manner, with Price set to be on the lookout for a new gig for the 2022 NRL season.


  1. Penrith should sign him as an assistant coach. If he doesn’t get a first grade position straight up? Their assistant coaches & lower grade coaches always seem to be in demand lately,
    Brennan , when he was a lower grade coach at Penrith. To the Gold Coast first grade.
    Barrett, lower grade & assistant coach from Penrith, to Manly & now Bulldogs.
    Ciraldo , lower grade & assistant coach at Penrith. Small stint in first grade at Penrith. Now Cronulla are even considering him , as their next first grade coach.
    Price as assistant at Penrith. With his Super League achievements. Would then be sure to be offered a first grade role at another club.
