VETERAN coach Brian Smith has quit Super League club Wakefield with immediate effect.

Smith, 61, took over the reigns nine months ago in a bid to help the club avoid relegation – which was achieved with their win over Bradford in the Million Pound Match in September. But after just one win from their first five games this year, Smith told his players on Tuesday that he would be resigning due to “personal reasons”.

Wakefield have confirmed they will hold a press conference at 12.30pm on Wednesday at their Belle Vue home ground.

He is also currently a consultant for the Serbian Rugby League team. Not a prestigious role but if they qualify for the WC next yr don't be surprised to see the Trbojevic Bros being selected for them

Is being a **** coach a personal reason?
