Agar leaves Warrington for NRL's Dragons

Oct 5, 2017 - 1:11 PM Former Hull and Wakefield boss Richard Agar will take his coaching career to the NRL after leaving his post as assistant at Warrington.

The Wolves have confirmed the departure of Agar after three years as right-hand man to Tony Smith, who has also left the club.

Agar, who was in charge of France for the 2013 World Cup, is expected to join the backroom staff of St George Illawarra.

"I have been fortunate to experience grand finals, Challenge Cup finals, winning the league and a World Cup during my coaching career in this country," Agar said.

"To experience living and working in Australia at this stage of my life is an opportunity I feel I could not pass up, for both me and my family."

Warrington chief executive Karl Fitzpatrick, who recently spent a week in Australia seeking a successor to Smith, said: "On behalf of everyone at the club I'd like to thank Richard for all his efforts and hard work during his time with us.

"He played a massive part in the success of 2016. I know the players all respected and enjoyed working with him. A move to the NRL is an exciting opportunity for him and his family, and we wish him all the best with this new venture."
