Lewis questions Bennett move

Wally Lewis has questioned Wayne Bennett’s decision to take over the head coaching position with England.

Lewis played under Bennett with Brisbane and Queensland.

“If it excites him, I suppose he’ll take it up and it’ll probably be a good thing for the standard of international rugby league, but I’m a bit of the old school,” the 56-year-old told Brisbane radio station Triple M.

“I believe that if you’re an Australian you coach Australia, and if you’re a Piom, you take charge of them.

“But Bennett’s been with the New Zealanders and a lot of people say it’s increased the standard of international football.

“If that’s what it’s all about, then I guess there’s no problem with it.

“But I don’t know whether I’d be – or a lot of other guys – would be stepping into that position.”
