Raiders reshuffle coaches


Chris Wilson

The Canberra Raiders are working on an urgent coaching reshuffle just days out from the start of the pre-season, with assistant coach Andrew McFadden asking to be released from the club.
McFadden’s impending departure comes as fellow assistant coach Justin Morgan explores his options at other NRL clubs, facing a demotion from the Raiders’ top squad.
Raiders coach David Furner is yet to finalise his backroom moves, but is set to announce a new coaching structure in coming days, including a replacement strength-and-conditioning coach who is   based in the United Kingdom.

He will replace Matt Ford,  who finished with the club last week.

Morgan still has a year to run on his contract and may be relegated to the Raiders under-20s or Canberra’s NSW Cup feeder team, the Mounties.
McFadden, who played 76 games for the Raiders, has requested a release.
Neither Morgan nor McFadden would  comment.

Morgan only joined the Raiders only last year as a replacement for sacked assistant Quentin Pongia.

Having missed out on the head coaching role with the New Zealand Warriors, he held discussions with the Melbourne Storm and Sydney Roosters, but those talks amounted to nothing.
Andrew Dunneman is set to be rewarded with a call-up to the NRL team after guiding Canberra’s under-20s to this year’s grand final.
