The appointment followed a robust and integrated process involving Scurrah, Vodafone Warriors recruitment and development manager Dean Bell and chairman Bill Wavish, with input throughout from other board members as well as owners Owen Glenn and Eric Watson.

“We’re thrilled to secure a coach of Matthew’s calibre,” said Scurrah.

“He’s had wide experience and success with a number of clubs, initially making his mark winning titles with Bradford in the English Super League and also taking Canberra and Penrith to the NRL finals a total of five times.

“While we have spoken to a number of contenders, Matthew consistently impressed us every time we met him with his total vision of how our football programme should be structured and run.

“Through his long association with the game as a player and especially as a coach, he appreciates as much as anyone just what’s required to achieve the standards we are striving for.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for Matthew as head coach to shape our football department to enable us to become a consistent threat in the NRL. Our ultimate goal will always be to win premierships and, in Matthew, we have secured a coach not only capable of achieving this but also with the skills and vision to build a stronger total football club.”
