Mal Meninga extends his time as Australia coach

Mal Meninga has extended his contract as Australia coach until the end of the 2021 World Cup.

The 59-year-old was appointed as Kangaroos boss in December 2015 and led them to a World Cup win in 2017, having not lost a match throughout the tournament.

Meninga said: “I’m incredibly honoured to continue to coach the Kangaroos and in particular, have the opportunity to coach the team to another World Cup campaign.

“Playing for my country was for me the pinnacle of my career and I know that every player I’ve coached as part of the Kangaroos has felt similarly.

“We’ve worked hard to respect our past and take the spirit of former players with us every time we represent Australia and our fans.

“I’m looking forward to the next few years with the team and the opportunity to coach at a World Cup in the United Kingdom in 2021.”
