Reports: Bennett to leave England and Great Britain role

Wayne Bennet will leave his role as England and Great Britain head coach when his contract expires next week, according to The Mole.

The 69-year-old took charge in 2016 in the aim of guiding England to victory in the 2017 World Cup, where they narrowly lost to Australia in the final.

His popularity among British and English fans has since declined dramatically, not least on the back of the current Lions Tour, where GB have won none of their first three games against Tonga and New Zealand.

His conservative, structured style of play has also not gone down well with the public and will reportedly spell the end of his time as head coach.

It isn’t yet known who will take over, however Salford’s Ian Watson and London’s Danny Ward, who are both currently Bennet’s assistant coaches, are likely to be front-runners.
