The Huddersfield coach, Nathan Brown, has said he could return to Australia at the end of this season. Brown is in the second year of a three-year contract, but has been strongly linked with the likely vacancy at Cronulla, currently near the foot of the National Rugby League.

"I can't guarantee I'll be anywhere next year, but I haven't spoken to anyone in the NRL," Brown said. "If something came up in Australia, I'm obviously going to look at it, because that's the country where I live and where all the family are."

Shaun Ainscough has returned to Widnes. The Wigan winger went on loan earlier in the season, before a stint at Castleford. He was recalled from that loan last week and played in Wigan's defeat by Harlequins. Now he has gone back to Widnes, under the new dual registration system.
