Former Wallabies coach Michael Cheika has ruled out a return to the Waratahs, where he celebrated super rugby success by winning the 2014 title.

Cheika says it is not the time for him to return to super rugby to coach the winless team
.
The former Wallabies boss had been hailed as a possible replacement for the sacked coach Rob Penney, who was the victim of a disappointing season.

Cheika is the only coach who has ever led NSW to a super rugby title. He mastered the Waratahs breakthrough in 2014 before taking over the Wallabies the following year.

He led Australia to the rugby World Cup final in 2015, but gave up after failing at the 2019 global show in Japan and has been an assistant ever since the Sydney Roosters NRL team and Lebanese Rugby League national coach.

Cheika was the commentator for the Super Rugby AU game between Melbourne and Queensland and said he was ready to « do whatever it takes to help them (the Waratahs) to get back on track « .

 » I think now is not the time to train the Waratahs, « Cheika said of Stan Sport.

 » It might be a bit too fresh, raw and also nationally they probably don’t need me in this room at this point.

« You need clean air, wallaby trainer, without the name of the last four or five years because it’s for. » was a big deal to me. « 

Penney’s assistants , Jason Gilmore and Chris Whitaker, will share coaching responsibility for the remainder of the season.

Cheika is due to advise the Waratahs on the structure of the long-term coaching build-up of the contested franchise and said he had with Paul Doorn, Waratahs General Manager , spoken.

“I don’t think my ideas are the ultimate ideas – I just gave (Doorn) a few ideas about what I’ve seen in the past and what worked for us and what could work for NSW – and got a little bit of the DNA little more.

“It was a wonderful experience for me to train NSW. Loved every minute of it – the ups and downs – and I think we can get back to it pretty quickly with this team. “

Cheika believed the Waratahs could take their cues from the Reds, who have long-term support for coach Brad Thorn and are now unbeaten in 2021.

 » For NSW, I think maybe that’s the look, someone who does that long-term can and not try to go elsewhere, « said Cheika.

 » Someone who understands this environment and wants to be here in the long term and bring this team back to the top. «
