Michael Cheika will embrace the Wallabies coaching challenge in the same cavalier fashion that led the NSW Waratahs to long-awaited Super Rugby glory in 2014.
After a whirlwind pursuit by the ARU, Cheika was formally ushered in as Ewen McKenzie’s replacement on Wednesday and said he had no hesitation accepting the daunting role despite the last two coaches’ reigns ending in despair.

Brive have announced the signing of Sevens international finisher Benito Masilevu, who has become the latest Fijian player to arrive in French rugby.
The 24-year-old flyer was the second highest try-scorer on this season’s IRB Sevens World Series, scoring 27 tries over the nine-leg tournament.
Masilevu joins fellow Fijians Sisaro Koyamaibole, Dominiko Waqaniburotu and Malakai Radikadike in their ranks ahead of the 2014/15 campaign.
