Sharp Appointed At
English rugby league club Hull has hired Australian Peter Sharp as new head coach.
Head coach of NRL sides the Northern Eagles and Manly from 1999-2003, Sharp is currently assistant to former Hull boss Brian Smith at Parramatta. The 51-year-old is expected to be able to take up the position immediately, subject to obtaining a work permit.
He takes over from John Kear, who left the last week after a string of poor results in Super League.
