McClennan appointed new Warriors' boss

Vodafone Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah today confirmed Brian McClennan as the Vodafone Warriors' new head coach.

Scurrah said the former New Zealand and Leeds coach had been signed on a two-year deal through to the end of the 2013 NRL season.

McClennan (49) will take over from Ivan Cleary, the longest-serving coach in the club's history, who will finish up with the Vodafone Warriors at the end of the 2011 campaign after six seasons at the helm.
