Australian rugby league coach Mal Meninga says he has reconciled with former coach Wayne Bennett.

The pair fought a very public feud in the media  in 2016 after Meninga was appointed Australian coach ahead of Bennett, with the Broncos mentor then taking up the position as England coach for the World Cup.

Meninga (pictured)  says any bad blood was born out of Bennetts frustration at missing out on the Kangaroos job but the pair have now put it behind them and their friendship remains as strong as ever.
