I just get the feeling with Belamey favourite to take over the Broncos, Bennet has agreed a Wigan contract as coach

From what I gathered Bellmay is maybe staying put. But Bennett is not staying on regardless due to how the meeting where he was told they were going after Bellamy went. Still contracted to them for another season though.

I wouldn`t have thought it was his option at his age, i was told our coach was going to Scotland as defence coach

If Bennett was to be our next coach then his style of play wouldn't go down well with many of our fans.
Apparently he insists that his team complete their first ten sets in a game. This usually ends with little more than five drives and a kick in the first 20-25 mins.

Mind you, having Wayne Bennett as head coach does say something in itself!

Yes they do, but in practice the Broncos are hardly the best examples of this.
