Rugby League: Endacott is target of British clubs

FRANK ENDACOTT, the coach of the Junior Kiwis, is in demand by British clubs, writes Dave Hadfield. Clubs from both divisions of the Rugby League have approached Endacott about his availability for next season.

'They have been in the nature of inquiries, but one was rather more than that,' said Endacott, who also coached Canterbury to the national championship last season.

His five years in that job have been ended by a restructuring of representative rugby in New Zealand and he does not know what he will be doing on his return home. A firm offer from England would therefore have great appeal.

Martin Dermott, the Wigan hooker who dislocated his elbow against Leigh on Tuesday, has been ruled out of the second Test against New Zealand.
