Australian Matt Parish has been appointed as the new coach of Salford, the Super League side announced on Thursday.

Parish succeeds compatriot Shaun McRae, who left the Willows due to ill health in April

The 42-year-old Parish, currently assistant to NSW State of Origin coach Ricky Stuart, has not only never worked before in Britain, but he has yet to visit the country.

A former assistant at North Queensland Cowboys, he will join Salford in mid-July after the end of this year's Origin series.

"I am tremendously excited to be joining Salford for this important stage in their history and I can't wait to get over," said Parish, who played for Balmain from 1988 to 1993.

Salford are 11th in the Super League, three points off the play-off positions with 12 games remaining.
