The New South Wales State of Origin rugby league coach Ricky Stuart has taken over from Kiwis coach Stephen Kearney at the struggling NRL club the Parramatta Eels.

Stuart's signed a three year deal starting from next season.

Kearney stepped down from the role last week, with the Eels last on the competition ladder having won just four of their 18 games this season.
