Wigan are poised to confirm former player Shaun Wane as their new head coach.

The Warriors have called a news conference for 2pm tomorrow to announce the successor to Michael Maguire, who has returned to Australia after a successful two-year spell at the DW Stadium to coach South Sydney.



Wane, a former Great Britain prop, has been Maguire's full-time assistant throughout his two seasons in charge and is expected to get the nod to take over.



Former dual-code international Iestyn Harris, who stepped down as Crusaders head coach following their withdrawal from Super League, is thought to be lined up as Wane's assistant.
