Wallabies: Michael Cheika future; former players Brendan Cannon and Matthew Burke call for change


Former Test hooker Brendan Cannon says if coach Michael Cheika keeps his job Rugby Australia need to immediately appoint an independent selector to help arrest the slide of the Wallabies.

There are growing calls for RA to sack Cheika after the Australian team’s latest loss to England, which brings their record to just four wins from 13 Tests this year.

The RA board is reportedly meeting on December 10 for another performance review, with the 2019 World Cup in Japan looming.

Cannon says Cheika can continue as coach but his power needs to be reined in.

“There needs to be a change in the structure and support mechanisms behind him,” Cannon says.
