Scott Wisemantel’s announcement as Wallabies attack coach is expected to be little more than a formality, and it’s now emerged that another one of the men Rugby Australia are eyeing off to work under Dave Rennie, Matt Taylor, is close to joining the new set-up.

Rugby AU director of rugby Scott Johnson admitted last week he was looking at Taylor, as well as Wisemantel, as a potential assistant to bring on for 2020. That’s now looking more and more likely to happen, with reports emerging on Wednesday that the former Queensland defence coach is closing in on a return to Australia as national defence coach.

Michael Cheika appears safe as Wallabies coach but the man he once anointed his successor, Stephen Larkham, could be in the firing line under a patchwork coaching solution being contemplated by Rugby Australia. The Herald understands Larkham was thrown up at Monday's board meeting as a

The Wallabies gig intrigues a lot of international coaches because they know they can do no worse than Cheika. Later, Jones pursued Johnson to join his Wallabies coaching staff. One appalling example last week was Drew Mitchell posting to R&M on Twitter a strange article about Bernard ‘‘I’m

Taylor has been coaching in Scotland since 2012, with the Glasgow Warriors up until 2017 – when Dave Rennie joined the side as head coach – and the national team as a defence/assistant coach for the entire stint.

Another former Reds assistant, Nick Stiles, is also firmly in the mix to join Rennie’s new staff as forwards coach.

Stiles, who unlike Taylor had a stint as Queensland head coach, appears likely to return home from his current position in charge of the Kintetsu Liners – the Japanese club with the likes of Quade Cooper and Will Genia on their roster.

However, the Sydney Morning Herald is reporting Rennie may opt to bring in a fellow New Zealander as forwards coach rather than Stiles, and instead have the Queenslander come back to Australia in a different role.

Rennie needs space for rebuild: Connolly

  Rennie needs space for rebuild: Connolly Former Wallabies coach John Connolly says there needs to be realistic expectations placed on Australia's incoming head coach, New Zealander Dave Rennie.Rennie's contract takes him through until the end of the 2023 World Cup, but he won't take over the job until he completes his commitments to Scottish side Glasgow Warriors in mid-2020.

In the past, the Australian teams have been fiercely independent, refusing to adopt a single national style or coaching approach. "I am excited to be returning to Rugby Australia in the director of rugby role and I am looking forward to supporting Michael and the Wallabies in their build up to the World

Michael Hooper does not have his starting spot guaranteed, much less the Wallabies captaincy, as new Australian coach Dave Rennie makes clear form In his first interview on Australian soil, Rennie said he wanted a fitter, bolder, smarter and more respectful Wallabies team under his stewardship

The Herald is also reporting Chris Webb, who worked with Jamie Joseph in the Japanese high performance unit prior to the recent World Cup, could be a part of the new Wallabies set-up.

With the new faces set to link up with Rennie, Nathan Grey (defence), Shaun Berne (attack/backs) and Simon Raiwalui (forwards) – the Australian assistants in place when Michael Cheika announced his resignation – as well as team manager Pat Molihan, are all headed for the Wallabies exit, although some may remain involved in Australian rugby in different roles.

Eddie Jones says there was 'no formal discussion' with Rugby Australia over Wallabies coaching role .
Former Wallabies coach Eddie Jones says he was barely approached by Rugby Australia to return to Australia and replace outgoing coach Michael Cheika. "There was no formal discussion," he told 7.30."There was a brief text exchange with no actual in-depth discussion about whether I was interested in coaching Australia."I think it was a convenient conversation for the ARU [Rugby Australia] to have, to be honest."I don't think they were really interested in bringing me back as the Australian coach.
