Just when you couldn’t be any more envious of the back-to-back defending premiers – the Sydney Roosters have gone out and hired former Wallabies head coach Michael Cheika.
A report from News Corp has confirmed Cheika has been working with the Roosters for several weeks.
“He is helping push myself and the assistant coaches to improve and challenging our ideas and helping push us again in 2020,” Robinson told The Daily Telegraph.
“He is also a really skilful attacking style of coach as well. We are taking anything we can learn from his style of coaching and his attacking mindset.
“Cheiks loves the footy environment. He is a rugby union coach but he grew up in the Eastern Suburbs and he just loves footy, whether it’s union or league.
“He brings a depth of knowledge with a real simple punch to his delivery. He is very good at delivering messages.”
Meanwhile the Brisbane Broncos have announced veteran forward Alex Glenn as their captain for the 2020 season ahead of incumbent Darius Boyd.
