Raper denies he has job lined up in

The coach of English rugby league club Wigan, Stuart Raper, has denied he's lined up a job with Cronulla when he returns to Australia later this year.

Raper coached the Sharks' under-21 side before moving to England in 1997 but says he's returning home for family reasons and hasn't got a job yet. With the Sharks struggling under national coach Chris Anderson there've been suggestions Anderson will swap places with Raper - something both clubs deny.

Australians Peter Sharp and Andrew Farrar have already put their hands up for the Wigan job.
