In some exciting news, Brett Kimmorley has been appointed assistant coach of the USA.

The former NRL premiership winning halfback said he was stoked to be working alongside head coach Brian McDermott of the Leeds Rhinos.

"I'm very excited and honoured to be part of the coaching staff for the U.S.A. Hawks team in the 2017 World Cup. Brian is a very successful coach in the Super League and I look to educate myself from the time we spend together," Kimmorley told www.espn.com.au.

"I look forward to sharing my knowledge of the game and assisting the players with their performance not only in the World Cup, but also when they return to America.

"I have played in a World Cup and view it as the pinnacle of international game and will do my best to achieve the best results that we can."
