Hickmans joins New England rugby league

A second Australia-based member has joined the England rugby league staff with the appointment of Jeremy Hickmans as physical performance analyst.
The 36-year-old, who played for Hull KR and Keighley, is currently performance director at St George Illawarra.
He will link up with new coach Steve McNamara ahead of the international against France on 12 June.
Hickman’s arrival follows the earlier appointment of Sydney Roosters coach Brian Smith as performance adviser.
Hickmans will also be working with the team for the Four Nations series against Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea, starting in October.
“Jeremy is regarded as the leader in his field in the NRL (National Rugby League),” said McNamara.
“Just as Brian Smith is keeping us up-to-date on all technical and tactical developments in the NRL, Jeremy will be doing the same on the physical performance aspects.”
Hickman stated: “We will use all the latest development in sports science technology to put in place programmes that will keep the England player at the peak of their performance levels, during their time in camp and on match day.”
