Wakefield man Alan Hunte has taken temporary charge at Salford City Reds following the sacking of Phil Veivers.

Super League’s bottom club dismissed Veivers after the Reds sank to a 38-4 loss to London Broncos on Friday - their fourth loss in five games.

Hunte, the Reds’ head of youth development, has been appointed interim boss and could be in charge for the trip to his home town club, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, on Sunday.

Former Great Britain and England international Hunte, 42, played at Belle Vue in 1989 before joining St Helens where he amassed 244 appearances in eight years.

Hunte, who also switched codes for a short stint at Pontypridd RFC in 2000, went on to play at Hull FC, Warrington and Salford.
