The former
New Zealand head coach– famous for winning titles in his first year
with domestic and international squads – led the Rhinos to a second successive
Super League Grand Final win after taking over from Tony Smith in 2007.

captured a World Club Challenge win over Melbourne.

2005 Tri-Nations final. It's a great debate to have amongst fans of a rising super coach.

over the moon at securing a third year at the Rhinos.
