Former Maroons, NRL coach dies, aged 49

The rugby league world is in morning following the sudden death of premiership-winning Cowboys coach Paul Green, aged 49.

A former halfback who won the Rothmans Medal with Cronulla in 1995 as the competition’s best and fairest player, he made 162 top-grade appearances for the Sharks, Cowboys, Roosters and Broncos in a lengthy career from 1994-2004.

He became a successful coach, starting out in the Roosters’ lower grades before taking over at North Queensland in 2014 and guiding the club to its only premiership in history the following season in the memorable Grand Final win over Brisbane in extra time.

Green passed away suddenly at his Brisbane home on Thursday morning and a cause of death is yet to be known.

After finishing as Cowboys coach in 2020, he took over as Queensland coach the following year but resigned after one series to concentrate on the search for another full-time NRL position.
