England head coach Wayne Bennett has been sacked by Australian NRL side Brisbane Broncos and will join South Sydney Rabbitohs a year earlier than planned.

Bennett had agreed to move to the Rabbitohs in 2020, in a swap with South Sydney head coach Anthony Seibold.

But both will now be in place for 2019.

The 68-year-old, who was reappointed as England head coach in February, won seven Grand Finals in 24 seasons across two spells at the Broncos.

“I’m really pleased it’s all resolved and that I can join this great club with a free mind, knowing I did the right thing by the fans, staff and players,” said Bennett.
