According to the report, the Warriors will interview their candidates via Skype, with the selection panel containing club owner Mark Robinson, chairman Rob Croot, CEO Cameron George and former captain Simon Mannering.

On that shortlist is current England boss Shaun Wane, yet to coach his new side after taking the job earlier this year.

Wane has achieved success in the UK, winning the Super League with the Wigan Warriors.

The Telegraph also report that on that shortlist is Wayne Bennett, despite his public rejection of the Warriors' job last month.

Current interim coach Todd Payten is another on the reported shorlist, along with Melbourne Storm assistant coach Jason Ryles, and ex-Newcastle Knights coach Nathan Brown.
