Former Castleford Tigers hooker Andrew Henderson has left his job as head coach of London Broncos to become assistant to new Warrington boss Steve Price.

The 38-year-old, who also played for Barrow and Sheffield Eagles and represented Scotland in the last two World Cups, was named Championship coach of the year after guiding the Broncos to a second-place finish in 2017.

Price, who has succeeded Tony Smith at the Wolves, said: “Andrew has always been enthusiastic and meticulous with his preparation and I saw that first hand when Cronulla played an exhibition game against the London Broncos ahead of the World Club Challenge.

“He comes to us on the back of a great season down at the Broncos and I am excited to be working alongside him as his experience within the game gives him a lot to offer the performance team here.”

London say they have begun the process of finding a replacement for Henderson, who began his coaching career at Sheffield before joining the Broncos, initially as assistant to Joe Grima, in November 2014.

Henderson said: “It is a fantastic opportunity presented to me by Warrington. The club has built a solid infrastructure and superb facilities in recent years.

“I think as a team they had a disappointing year for their standards.

“But I really believe there is some exciting young talent as well some good senior professionals who can lead the team forward.”
