Ex-Bulldogs NRL coach UK-bound: report

Sacked Canterbury NRL coach Kevin Moore has been hailed in England as the new mentor for Super League outfit Hull KR.

However, Hull KR are yet to officially announce who will take over the reins from Justin Morgan next season.

A report by The Guardian newspaper claimed Hull KR had "pulled off a major coup" by signing Moore but the Super League club are not expected to make an announcement until later this week.

The Hull Daily Mail newspaper claimed a club source said talks were "still continuing in Australia" and that they were checking each coaching candidate's visa eligibility.

Moore was believed to be the top priority on a shopping list taken to Australia recently by Hull KR chairman Neil Hudgell and two club directors.

They reportedly also interviewed South Sydney assistant Kurt Wrigley, Newcastle assistants Andrew Dunemann and Craig Sandercock and Parramatta assistant Matt Cameron on the weekend.

If appointed, Moore would be the only former NRL head coach to be at the helm of a Super League club.

Moore - the 2009 Dally M Coach of the Year - played in the UK for Halifax during the mid-1980s.

Hull KR - who released Morgan with one year remaining on his contract - would become the fourth SL club in recent months to appoint an Australian coach.

Peter Gentle (Hull FC), Matt Parish (Salford) and Ian Millward (Castleford) have recently received SL head coaching nods.
