Dewsbury Rams coach Glenn Morrison has expressed his delight at making the shortlist for the New Zealand vacancy.

The Australian, formerly of Parramatta Eels, Bradford Bulls and Wakefield Wildcats, has been coaching the Rams for a year since joining on a two-year deal.

Morrison is up against previous coach Stephen Kearney and ex-New Zealand internationals Richie Blackmore and David Kidwell for the Kiwi job.

"It's been crazy really," Morrison told Sky Sports on making the four-man list.

"Getting the Rams ready for the first game of the season next week and then get a call Sunday morning saying I've been shortlisted. It's been pretty amazing since then the phone's been ringing.

"My CV got put forward. Obviously I got the call saying I was shortlisted and the interview process and presentation process is going to go forward this week it's sort of going to become reality. It's pretty crazy.

Seen something

"I had to look at the phone twice to make sure it was really a new Newland number at the stage. They've seen something in my CV and my coaching that they like.

"To get this far from where I've started is amazing to get to the last four, especially being the only one who is not a Kiwi in the four."

"I don't know if they want to go in a different direction. To get this far from where I've started is amazing to get to the last four, especially being the only one who is not a Kiwi in the four."

Morrison is the only non-New Zealander to be considered, however, he does not feel his nationality will count against him when he is interviewed by the six-man selection panel.

"It hasn't really come up with the New Zealand reporters," he added on being Australian, their main rivals.

"It didn't matter who I played for or who I played against I played to win and it's the same as a coach, it doesn't matter who you coach or who the opponents are. You want to coach the team to win."
