Celtic Crusaders have unveiled former Wigan boss Brian Noble as their new head coach at a press conference in Bridgend.

The former Great Britain coach, 48, who won three World Club Championships and three Grand Finals in his five-year reign at Bradford Bulls between 2001 and 2006, has taken up a senior role at the Crusaders after being released by Wigan at the end of his contract last season.

The Crusaders have been chasing Noble to replace Australian John Dixon, who left the club after they finished bottom in their first season in Super League.

A deal to reunite Noble with first-team coach Jon Sharp to form a new management team has also been confirmed, with Wales coach Iestyn Harris as an assistant.
