All Black great Richie McCaw has left the ARU reeling after turning down a 4 year $4.2 million dollar deal to coach the Wallabies.
The 148 test veteran had been courted by the ARU for months after a string of disapointing performances from the Wallabies.
McCaw has commented on the whole situation saying “I was flattered by the offer but could never see myself coaching Australia. It just wouldn’t feel right. Plus I’m killing it at being an actor/pilot right now so don’t think I need rugby coaching at this stage”
Current Wallabies coach Michael Cheika is reportedly frustrated about the situation telling reporters “I feel like I’ve been doing a great job as a coach however I plan to do some soul searching in the outback over the next few weeks before the end of season tour.”
