Wayne Bennett has reportedly re-signed with NRL club Brisbane in a deal worth $2 million.

The deal will keep the master coach at the Broncos until the end of the 2019 season.

Bennett - who will also hold the England national team reins until the 2017 World Cup - returned to Brisbane last season after seven years away, guiding them to the 2015 NRL grand final.

They will face their grand final conquerors North Queensland at what is expected to be a sold out Suncorp Stadium on Friday night.
