Frank Endacott a wanted man

English Super League club Widnes are keen to keep hold of former New Zealand coach Frank Endacott and give him a permanent position at the club.

Facing relegation at present the Vikings have used Endacott in a short-term advisory capacity alongside rookie coach Stuart Spruce and are set to offer him a spot on the backroom staff.

Endacott says it will need a lot of thought as he has many business interests in New Zealand.

Widnes are currently second from bottom, just ahead of last-placed Castleford.
