    Kieron joined Neil Jukes’ coaching staff in time for the start of the current season after his release from Huddersfield Giants. A highly respected level 4 coach Kieron has worked alongside some of the game’s best coaches since his playing career at Leigh Centurions was cruelly ended by a recurring shoulder injury in 2002.

    He worked for St Helens from 2002-2005, for Huddersfield Giants from 2006-2008 and then returned to Saints from 2009-2012 before returning to the Giants. After being appointed coach to Canada in 2010 he has since been a highly successful coach to the England Knights.
