Anderson joins England set-up

Former Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson has been appointed as an assistant coach to Wayne Bennett in the England national team set-up.

Anderson will work closely alongside the England Team Manager Jamie Peacock and coaching staff in planning all training sessions, recovery and competition for players.

He will monitor elite England players throughout the year and will report on all England sessions.

Anderson said: “The more I thought about this role the more I thought it would be a good fit for me.

“The biggest factor in taking this job was the opportunity to work alongside Wayne, Denis and Paul.

“To see people who have been in the game for long periods and learn from them is something I’m looking forward to.

“Wayne’s experience is unquestionable and Denis is doing a great job at Widnes.

“Paul is a young, upcoming coach and someone who’s been there and done that.

 “I can’t wait to get started on Monday morning. All the players who will get selected are the elite in this country and are all there with a common goal.

“I can’t see there being much teaching but more mentoring and helping them be the best they can be.”

RFL Chief Executive, Nigel Wood, said: “We are delighted to have secured the services of Paul as a full time member of the England coaching set up.

“Paul has superb calibre as a coach, a thorough knowledge of the English game and he is an outstanding addition to the team.

“Paul is now one of a group of top English coaches and former players involved with England and will join them in working with the most successful coach in Rugby League history, Wayne Bennett.

“Their appointments represent a significant investment and commitment to help develop the best English coaches and enable them to work with and learn from the best in the world.”
