Suspended Cronulla Coach has more work to do

SUSPENDED Cronulla Sharks Coach Shane Flanagan still has more work to do before his NRL suspension can be lifted.

CEO Dave Smith said Mr Flanagan had made significant progress in addressing the concerns which led to his registration as a coach being suspended on 17 December last year.

“We are impressed by Mr Flanagan’s attitude and commitment to satisfying the conditions imposed on him during his suspension,” Mr Smith said.


“But there are still some areas which need further work and, at this stage, his suspension has not been lifted.”

He’ll now have to complete intensive training courses on workplace health and safety as well as a refresh on the NRL rules and codes of conduct.

He’s also been ordered not to deal directly or indirectly with the Sharks club, team and players.

The NRL says they will only lift the suspension once all the conditions have been met.

Meanwhile, it’s also been revealed the West Tigers coach Mick Potter will no longer coach the side.

His contract has not been renewed following a less than impressive season by the Tigers.

The club has said they will decide on a new coach by October 27.
