Hull KR brought an early end today to Tony Smith’s three-year spell as head coach following a dismal run of form.
Smith had been due to step down at the end of the season, a decision announced in April, but the 55-year-old Australian has left with immediate effect following a run of one win in eight games.
Assistant coach Danny McGuire will take charge until the arrival of Willie Peters, who was named as Smith’s successor in May.
In April, Smith made the surprise announcement that he would not extend the three-year contract he signed upon his arrival in 2019, stating that he had no other work lined up but felt the decision was “the best thing for the organisation”.
They had won five straight games prior to Smith announcing his planned exit, entering the play-offs and reaching the Challenge Cup semi-final, but things have unwound since and they were dumped out of the cup and have dropped out of the top six.
