South Sydney Rabbitohs boss Nick Pappas comments on future of coach Jason Demetriou


The South Sydney Rabbitohs chairman Nick Pappas has commented on the future of the club’s coach Jason Demetriou following rumours of his sacking.

The Daily Telegraph revealed that Pappas broke his silence and shared his support towards the coach, while emphasising that the club’s priority is for him to succeed, especially against the Cronulla Sharks this weekend.

“The first thing is we want Jason to succeed,” Pappas said.

“We want him to win on Saturday night. There’s no doubt about that. We want him to succeed so he can carry the club through the rest of the season and his entire contract.

“That’s not just the club’s position, that’s Russell [Crowe]’s position, that’s our other owner’s position and the board’s position.

“There have been some changes made to the team and we hope that brings results. If the results continue, we will look at it.”

Pappas further added that all the club wants to do is support Demetriou.

“There is no review. I want to make that abundantly clear. Russell is Jason’s strongest supporter, as am I, as is the board, as is management from (chief executive) Blake (Solly) down,” he said.

“No-one wants Jason to fail. We all want him to succeed. No-one would be happier than me or Russell or Blake if we win on Saturday night. That is honest and sincere.”

These comments come after Demetriou’s position has come under scrutiny this year, following the performance of the Rabbitoh’s in recent games.
