Nit Sports has met with Kuk Sports to discuss potential partnerships and what could be next for the KUKs brand.
The team, which is owned by the Australian company CSL Holdings, had their contract at the Kuk Sport team ended last month, with a number of the squad’s players leaving to join the CSL-owned club.
They are now set to be replaced by Australian-born Kuk assistant coach Steve Jones, who was recently appointed as Kuk’s coach.
Kuk had previously announced that they would be closing down the club and would be moving on with a new name, Kuk Rugby Club.
But with a few key players remaining on the squad, the club has yet to announce a new coaching and coaching philosophy for the squad.
While the Kukeys will be replaced, the team is still going to be run by a team of volunteers.KUK Rugby Club are set to move onto a new structure in the coming months, with new coaches and new players.
We are looking forward to being a part of the Kuku brand and continuing the growth of the game, Steve Jones said.
We want to keep doing what we do and get the most out of it.
We’ve been on a bit of a roll and are in a really good place now, Jones said on the team’s Facebook page.
Kuki Rugby Club has not yet announced the details of what will replace the Kukes squad, but has confirmed it will be “the next chapter in the Kuki saga”.
Kuk Rugby is currently in the process of opening a new team in the Northern Territory, with the team being run by an Australian-based coaching staff.
This is due to their association with the Kuchis community, and their involvement in the local youth rugby league, Kuki Rugby League said on their Facebook page on Wednesday.
Kuchis Rugby League also announced it had been awarded a contract to run the Kutcha Warriors Rugby League club, which had its contract extended from the end of 2018 to 2020.
The Kutchas rugby league team is currently on a trial basis with the aim of winning an Australian youth competition, but will be in a permanent contract when the trial runs.
