Twitter Talk: Fans discuss Shaun Wane’s appointment as England boss

Fans have had their say on whether England made the right decision by appointing Shaun Wane as new Head Coach of the national team. 

The former Wigan boss replaces Australian Wayne Bennett, who served in the role for four years.

He has agreed a two-year deal and his first game in charge is set to be in a proposed mid-season international in June.

The 55-year-old had been working part-time as a High Performance Coach with Scottish Rugby Union, but will now return to the 13-man code.

Wane steered Wigan to three Super League titles in his seven years as Head Coach. Now, he is tasked with preparing England for their Ashes series with Australia later this year.

Here are how fans and former players reacted on twitter:
