Leeds Rhinos Coaching Record: Super League Era Insights

BBC Sport: Leeds Rhinos Coaching Record in the Super League Era

In the ever-evolving world of rugby league, the Leeds Rhinos have seen their fair share of coaching changes over the years. As current head coach Rohan Smith faces mounting pressure, the club’s new sporting director Ian Blease has promised a comprehensive review of on-field matters at Headingley.

Smith, who has been at the helm for over two years, currently boasts a win percentage of 50.8% – placing him ninth among the ten permanent coaches of the Rhinos in the Super League era. The article delves into the records of these ten men, providing an insightful look at the club’s coaching history.

At the bottom of the list is David Furner, whose ill-fated stint saw him win just 33.3% of his matches before departing in 2019. Moving up the ranks, the article examines the tenures of other recent Rhinos coaches, including Richard Agar (52.8% win rate) and the current incumbent, Rohan Smith.

The true legends of Leeds’ coaching staff emerge further up the list, with the likes of Brian McDermott (61% win rate), Tony Smith (73.1%), and the iconic Graham Murray (73.8%) leading the way. These men presided over a golden era of success for the Rhinos, capturing numerous domestic and international titles.

“As the club navigates the challenges of the present, the coaching record of their past provides valuable context and a benchmark for the future.”
