"But it's a different competition with different challenges in a different country and I want to test myself."
In 2012, Shaun Wane's first season as Wigan's head coach, the Warriors won the League Leaders' Shield but lost in the semi-finals of both the Super League play-offs and the Challenge Cup. Wigan are three points clear at the top of Super League after 14 matches in 2013.
He continued: "I work hard at my job and I want to be the best I can be. The challenge of going over there excites me and, who knows, one day it might come off."
But Wane, who has been linked with a role at New Zealand Warriors, has ruled out a move in the immediate future, adding: "The fact is that I'm in my dream job in this country and I'm loving it.
"I have a great group of staff with me at Wigan. It's nice to be spoken about but I'm the Wigan Warriors coach and it's a fantastic job that I have. I'm really happy where I am.
"It's not all about results for the first team. I have a vision of where I want to take the club and it's not going to happen overnight.
"Things are in place and I've got a chairman and owner in Ian Lenagan who supports everything I do, so I understand that I'm in a fantastic position."
