League coach turns to cricket

6:26 am on 30 October 2008

The ex-Bulldogs rugby league coach Steve Folkes has swapped sports by becoming the West Indian cricket team's strength and conditioning coach.

It's reported in Sydney the NRL premiership winning coach will be in charge of the fitness regime of the Caribbean team until at least May.

Folkes decided to change sports as there were no coaching jobs on offer in the NRL or Super League.

The former Australian opener and current West Indian coach John Dyson is a friend.
