ARL boss seeks 'please explain'
from Bennett

Australian Rugby League chairman Colin Love wants Kangaroos coach Wayne Bennett to explain his controversial return from the failed Tri Nations campaign in Britain.

But Love has all but confirmed Bennett will retain the national coaching job despite leading Australia to its first series loss in 27 years. Bennett caused a furore when he slipped past waiting media at Brisbane airport last Thursday.

Love says he was less than impressed by Bennett's actions and will discuss the matter at next Monday's ARL board meeting in Sydney.
