NRL's Wayne Bennett details how his affair with Dale Cage began after sparks flew in the medical...
NRLsupercoach Wayne Bennett has confirmed long running rumours that his current relationship with Dale Cage began while he was still living and married to his wife of more than four decades.
The seven-time premiership coach and one-time Father of the Year candidly opened up about his affair with Ms Cage, 22 years his junior, in a newly released biography The Wolf You Feed by sports journalist Andrew Webster.
Seven years ago, Daily Mail Australia revealed the identity of Bennett's new lover. The footy icon sent shockwaves through the NRL by confirming reports that his 42-year marriage with wife Trish had ended.
Mr Webster's book for the first time sheds light on how the relationship with Cage began. Bennett was coaching the Newcastle Knights and mother-of-three Cage was the manager of the practice of long-time club doctor Neil Halpin
The pair met in late 2013 when Bennett stormed into the doctor's office to inquire about unpaid medical bills just as Cage was about leaving for lunch.
The pair can thank then-Knights boss Nathan Tinkler for bringing them together in late 2013 when the club suddenly stopped paying the players' bills.
