Now much of the focus is on the Super League season which is fast approaching and just two months away.
However, it should not be forgotten that the Rugby League World Cup ended just weeks ago and England’s tournament ended prematurely when they were stunned by Samoa who nailed a Golden Point drop goal to end England’s hopes of winning the World Cup at the semi-final stage of the competition which had many questioning what went wrong.
There have been demands from the likes of Leeds Rhinos legend Jamie Peacock for a review into what went wrong for England.
As for England boss Shaun Wane, formerly of the Wigan Warriors, he has one more year on his deal but some have questioned whether he should remain in the position.
Former Wigan man and Warrington Wolves winger Brian Carney has suggested he shouldn’t be.
Talking on Sky Sports, Carney claimed it was not a full time role and wanted to see it awarded to however is the best coach by the time the Rugby League World Cup in France in 2025 comes around.
“I’d be happy to wait until the 2025 World Cup in France and give it to the best coach. Kristian Woolf coached St Helens to a Grand Final win and then took charge of Tonga without having his hands on those players for a year, so it’s not a full time job lets not pretend.”
