Shaun Wane wants his new assistants Andy Last and Paul Wellens to come up with ways of how England can go one better than every other nation.
Hull FC interim head coach Last and St Helens assistant Wellens were officially announced as part of Wane’s backroom staff on Wednesday.
And Wane has wasted no time in setting his new assistants assignments and objectives.
He said: “I’ve tasked our assistants with things, I want them to think outside the box: how can we give our players the jump on every other nation playing rugby league?
“I don’t see this as time at home so I’m watching lots of games, I’m reading lots of books, I’m trying to get in touch with some NRL coaches to have an honest chat generally, to learn something and hopefully they can learn from me.
“My days are still working days; I want to improve, I want to get better.
“When we come out of this, I want us to come out of it in a real good way, I want us to be better.”
