Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs great Terry Lamb has thrown his support behind caretaker coach Jim Dymock to take the job on permanently.
The NRL club is on the hunt for a replacement for the sacked Kevin Moore for 2012, with ex-assistant Dymock having assumed the reins since round 19.
Bulldogs chief executive Todd Greenberg says he’s received more than a dozen applications for the job, and previously confirmed he’d spoken with NSW State of Origin coach Ricky Stuart, but on Thursday said Dymock was in the “box seat”.
The Bulldogs want to give Dymock the rest of the season as an audition and Greenberg said a decision would be likely in around a month.
Four points outside the top eight, Canterbury are still a mathematical chance of making the finals.
