Bennett’s two-year contract will see him take charge of the national side for the International Series against New Zealand in 2018 and also for any Great Britain tour in 2019.
“It was disappointing not to be lifting the World Cup last December, but I mentioned about this squad being on a journey,” Bennett said regarding his extension.
“I want to continue that journey because I firmly believe we can achieve something special together.
