Bennett to stay on as England coach


Wayne Bennett will stay on as England head coach after agreeing a two year deal to remain in the position.

Australian Bennett, who also coaches Brisbane Broncos, took over from Steve McNamara in 2015 following a 2-1 series win against New Zealand.

Since taking over, Bennett has led England in the Four Nations, where a one point defeat against New Zealand stopped them from getting to the final, and the 2017 World Cup where they were only just beaten by Australia in the final.

Bennett will now be taking charge of another home series against New Zealand this winter, and would also lead any Great Britain tour in 2019.

He will now stay in the position until 2020.
