According to @7NewsSydney, Brad Fittler has been named as coach of Lebanon for the upcoming Rugby League World Cup.
Fittler will take Ivan Cleary's spot as head coach, with Souths coach Michael Maguire apparently in the mix but missing out.

"I've had it on in the car and I've looked at the words but I need to learn Arabic first."
