Shaun Wane would like head coaching role in NRL

Ex-Wigan boss Shaun Wane has admitted that he would like a head coaching role in the NRL.

The 54-year-old is currently in a consultancy role with Scotland Rugby Union which takes up one or two days per week.

Wane enjoyed seven seasons with hometown club Wigan between 2012-18, winning three Super League Grand Finals, a Challenge Cup, a League Leaders’ Shield and a World Club Challenge.

In conversation with Fox Sports, Wane said: “I’ve always been a big admirer of the NRL and the Australian game, I’d very much like to get an opportunity to test myself as a head coach in the NRL.

“I played with loads of Australian players and I’ve coached loads of Australian players so the interest has always been huge.

“There’s no better challenge than testing yourself in the toughest arena and on a week-to-week basis, that’s the NRL.

“I’ve had success in Super League, now I want to transfer that to the NRL.”
