OITA, Japan, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Australia coach Michael
Cheika said on Sunday he would not seek reappointment to the
post when his contract expires at the end of the year.
The Wallabies were knocked out of the World Cup in the
quarter-finals on Saturday when they were beaten 40-16 by
England at Oita Stadium.
Cheika had previously said he would step down if Australia
did not improve on their run to the final in 2015 in Japan and
win the World Cup for a third time.
New Zealander Dave Rennie, the former coach of the Waikato
Chiefs and current Glasgow Warriors boss, has been strongly
linked with the post in the Australian media.
