Glasgow Warriors head coach Dave Rennie has been appointed as Australia head coach on a three-and-a-half-year deal, the Wallabies have announced.

Rennie, who had also been approached about the vacant New Zealand post, succeeds Michael Cheika, who resigned after his side’s World Cup quarter-final defeat to England in Japan in October.

It’s understood Glasgow have already identified Rennie’s successor and an announcement will be made soon, although the New Zealander will see out the current season with the Warriors and depart in July 2020.
