The coaching merry-go-round on both sides of the world looks a little clearer with the news that the Canterbury Bulldogs have appointed Kevin Moore for next season. Moore, a former Halifax player, is being promoted internally to take over from Steve Folkes, with the ex-London Bronco, Jim Dymock, coming in as his assistant. That puts an end to the prospect of a candidate from Super League taking one of the NRL's big jobs.

St Helens' Daniel Anderson and Mick Potter of the Catalan Dragons were both linked with the position. Anderson is intent on returning to Australia at the end of this season and still has his hat in the ring at the Brisbane Broncos, while Potter remains the obvious favourite for the Saints job.

But Catalans are desperate to keep Potter and their president, Bernard Guasch, insisted: "We expect Mick to re-sign within the next week. Negotiations are well-advanced."

Hull have sent a deputation to Australia, hoping to sign Michael Dobson for the rest of this season.
