Wayne Bennett
Knights win Bennett sweepstakes

We all know 2011 is John Lang’s last year as the South Sydney Rabbitohs coach. But who will coach the Redfern club in 2012?

There have been persistent rumours that the Rabbitohs are chasing Wayne Bennett, the current St George Illawarra Dragons but the Rabbitohs continue to deny they are in talks.

It can safely be said that Bennett would be as much of a signing coup as the recent snaring of Greg Inglis for the Rabbitohs. His leadership and coaching ability is second to none and if anyone could take the Rabbitohs to a premiership, it would be Bennett.

All of this Bennett chatter comes amid further innuendo linking former Sydney Roosters, Cronulla Sharks and NSW coach Ricky Stuart to the Rabbitohs as well.
