Bennett signs on until 2019 with England

19 February 2018 11:53

Wayne Bennett has signed a new deal to coach England's rugby league team for the next two years.

Bennett led England to the World Cup final last year, where they lost 6-0 to hosts Australia.

The Australian will also take charge of a Great Britain side if they embark on a tour in 2019.

He said in a statement: "It was disappointing not to be lifting the World Cup last December, but I mentioned about this squad being on a journey. I want to continue that journey because I firmly believe we can achieve something special together.

"It's a pleasure to coach this squad because everyone wants to do their best for one another and do their job properly. The last couple of years have been encouraging and I have seen this group grow in confidence and belief.

"There's plenty of work to be done and club fixtures to be played between now and the New Zealand games - everyone is aware of what is required of them to join the England programme."
