Jon Wilkin claims Super League coach “wouldn’t be bothered” if he was sacked



In preparation for the upcoming Super League season, former St Helens player and controversial pundit Jon Wilkin has offered his opinion on Sam Burgess, the new Head Coach of Warrington Wolves.

Burgess, returning to Super League after his stint in the NRL with the South Sydney Rabbitohs, has garnered attention as one of the most surprising appointments in Super League history. Despite the uncertainty surrounding Burgess’s success in his new role, Wilkin believes that Burgess’s financial security as a multi-millionaire diminishes any potential pressure he may face. According to Wilkin, Burgess’s demeanor suggests he is not easily stressed, indicating that he may view his coaching position as a learning experience rather than a high-stakes endeavor.

Burgess is set to begin his Super League tenure with Warrington Wolves facing off against Catalans Dragons.

Bennett highlighted the importance of rugby in promoting community engagement, improving health and wellbeing, and fostering participation in sports. The completion of the Community Stadium represents a significant cultural and leisure asset for the city, aligning with previous initiatives such as landing the RHS Bridgewater and hosting the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra.
