- Former Wigan winger to be assistant to Souths’ NYC side
Former Wigan favourite Pat Richards has been appointed onto the coaching staff of South Sydney Rabbitohs.
Richards was forced to retire earlier this year after one season with Catalans Dragons. He won various honours during a 17-year career and holds the Club record at Wigan for the most points in a season, the most points in a Super League match and is third on the Club’s all-time list of point scorers.
The 34-year-old has been appointed as assistant to Ryan Carr at the Rabbitohs’ NYC side (reserves).
Rabbitohs Head Coach and former Wigan Head Coach Michael Maguire coached Richards during his time at Wigan and is pleased with his addition to the coaching staff.
“Pat will be a huge addition to the Rabbitohs coaching staff. He brings with him a wealth of experience in gaining success in the NRL and Super League and the knowledge he’ll bring to our Club will help shape our youth squad as they progress here,” said Maguire.
“I had the opportunity to coach Pat at Wigan and the professionalism that he displayed there and throughout his career has shaped him into a leading figure in Rugby League.”
