According to Wide World of Sports' The Mole, he has thrown his hat into the ring if Paul McGregor leaves his role as head coach following a post-season review.

“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.”

Wane, who is working part-time with Scotland RU, was recently linked with Newcastle Knights.

He left hometown club Wigan at the end of last season with a third Grand Final triumph, adding to the Challenge Cup and World Club Challenge he had previously won since succeeding Michael Maguire in 2012.
