The current English head coach has plenty of experience in terms of winning having led Wigan to five grand finals in seven years and three titles as well as a Challenge Cup triumph.
The 56-year-old left Wigan in 2018 and has had his eyes on an NRL coaching gig for some time, but has been overlooked for rookie coaches on several occasions.
Wane won 162 of his 240 games in charge of Wigan for a win percentage of 67.5 and he would bring the winning mentality the Eels need, especially in big games.
The biggest criticism of Brad Arthur is that he hasn’t got his side peaking at the right end of the season and Wane’s finals record speaks for itself
England coach Shaun Wane says he wants to come coach in the NRL, declaring he would “kill it” if given the chance.
Wane was coach of Wigan for many years, delivering silverware year on year.
Now after a spell in rugby union, he has replaced Wayne Bennett as England coach.
