Preston Grasshoppers have appointed Michael Lough as their new head coach.
Lough replaces Dave Baldwin, who left Preston in June to become forwards coach at Leeds Carnegie.
Adelaide-born Lough played 175 games in eight years with the Grasshoppers and captained the side before his retirement during the 2003-04 season.
"I have only played for two clubs, Burnside in Adelaide and Preston," he said. "It's a great honour to be named head coach of the club I love."
Director of rugby Gareth Dyer told BBC Radio Lancashire: "Michael's been part of the club for many years.
"He was an excellent player for us and he's developed as a coach. We felt that this was the best way forward and he was the right man for the job."
