Wayne Bennett confirmed as
Australian coach

The Australian Rugby League has confirmed today that former Queensland State of Origin, and current Brisbane Broncos coach, Wayne Bennett, will take over the reigns of the Australian Philips Kangaroos from Chris Anderson.

Wayne Bennett last coached the Kangaroos in 1998 in two tests against the New Zealand Kiwis, winning both tests before handing over the reigns to Chris Anderson the next year. Wayne Bennett?s record for coaching Rugby League sides speaks for itself, he has lead the Broncos to five premierships, and has taken Queensland to four State of Origin series victories.

He will have a busy schedule in front of him though with the Kangaroos in line to play upwards to 8 internationals, including the upcoming Tri-Series and ANZAC Test in Newcastle.
