Midlands Hurricanes assistant coach Dave Scott will take charge of the club on an interim basis following the suspension of Richard Squires.

Earlier this week, Squires received a three-month ban due to a breach of the RFL’s rules regarding betting on the sport.

One month of the ban has been suspended until the end of 2023.

Squires committed his future to the club ahead of the 2022 League 1 season, continuing his work from Coventry Bears.
