Glasgow Warriors head coach Dave Rennie looks set to replace Michael Cheika as Wallabies boss following his departure last week.
Cheika announced after Australia’s Rugby World Cup quarter-final defeat to England last week that he would not be seeking a contract renewal after nearly five years in the job.
Rennie, who coached the Chiefs to back-to-back Super Rugby titles, has long been linked with the role. And according to the Sydney Morning Herald – he’s got the job with an official announcement due in the coming weeks.
He joined the Glasgow Warriors as a successor to current Scotland coach Gregor Townsend in 2016, helping the Scottish side to the PRO14 semi-finals in his first season and the final in 2018-19.
The Warriors meanwhile have denied that Rennie could leave the team before the current PRO14 season ends next year.
“There are a lot of articles, a lot of speculation and a lot of theories, but Dave is committed to Glasgow until at least the end of the season,” Warriors assistant coach John Dalziel said
“There is never a thought of that changing. He is a man of real good stature and he’s working harder than ever to make sure Glasgow have a fantastic season this year and beyond.”
