Waratahs coach Michael Cheika has been named as the new head coach of the Wallabies by the Australian Rugby Union on a three-year contract, effective immediately.
Cheika’s appointment follows Ewen McKenzie’s resignation after Australia’s 29-28 loss to New Zealand in Brisbane on Saturday.

The domestic coaching career of Robbie Deans is without parallel in the annuals of trans-Tasman rugby.
A former All Black, Deans was the pin-up boy of the Canterbury team of his generation during a 12-year playing career.
Even greater acclaim has followed as one of the best coaches of the modern era.
