The rumour mill is abuzz today with the latest being that former Cronulla Sharks coach, Ricky Stuart will take over as Newcastle Knights coach in 2012.
Adding to this rumour is that it’s also believed that Stuart is behind Kade Snowden’s reluctance to re-sign with the Sharks. It’s no secret that Stuart believes Snowden to be one of the best young props in the game and if he was to take over the Knights coaching position in 2012, he’d certainly love to have the youngster wearing the red and blue.
This comes just a week after it was rumoured that super coach Wayne Bennett was linked to the Knights on a three year deal starting in 2012.
Knights current coach, Rick Stone, is in the final year of his contract and it’s been expected that he wouldn’t be re-signed.
