Bennett, Gould can work at Penrith: CEO

Penrith CEO Brian Fletcher believes legendary NRL coach Wayne Bennett could be a suitable fit alongside high-profile boss Phil Gould at the Panthers after the shock late-season sacking of Anthony Griffin.

Fletcher says Bennett - facing an uncertain future at the Broncos - would work well under Gould, who could offer him the chance to take the helm of a ready-made team.

"I'm sure they could work together, I wouldn't see any reason why they couldn't. From a Wayne Bennett point of view you're not coming to rebuild a side," Fletcher told the Big Sports Breakfast.
