Quade Cooper Has A Pop At Michael Cheika Following Decision To Step Down As Wallabies Boss
Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
Wallabies boss Michael Cheika will not seek to have his contract renewed when it expires at the end of the year following Australia’s World Cup quarter-final exit to England on Saturday.
Cheika has been in charge of Australia since 2014, immediately guiding them to a Rugby Championship before reaching the final of the Rugby World Cup in 2015. He was then named World Rugby Coach of the Year as a result.
“It is no secret I have no relationship with the CEO [Raelene Castle] and not much with the chairman [Cameron Clyne],” Cheika was quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald.
Quade Cooper meanwhile, who did not make Cheika’s Rugby World Cup squad for Japan – took a pop at his former coach upon hearing the news.
If he actually cared about Aus rugby he would have done it a while ago..

Safe to say neither will be on each other’s Christmas card list this year.
