Australia coach Michael Cheika could be on his way to the Premiership as he looks to revive his career following his post-World Cup Wallabies exit.
Cheika’s time with the Wallabies did not end well but he is still held in high regard having achieved plenty of success with both Leinster and Australia before his exit last year.
He was linked with the top job at Montpellier and has been recently lending a hand in the NRL but it appears his next job could be in England with the Rugby Paper linking him with the vacant post at Gloucester following head coach Johann Ackermann’s exit.
The Cherry and Whites also recently lost the services of Director of Rugby David Humphreys and a general-like figure in the shape of Cheika could be the perfect man for the job with reports suggesting Gloucester will drop their current set-up of having a DOR and a head coach.
Former Wales coach Rob Howley has also been mentioned for the Gloucester top as well as former England boss Stuart Lancaster.
Dai Young, Richard Cockerill, George Skivington, and Rory Teague are other coaches seen as contenders.
Cheika was replaced by Dave Rennie as Wallabies boss and also has experience coaching Stade Francais in Europe.
