Michael Cheika quits as Wallabies coach after RWC quarterfinal defeat

And while an emotional Cheika called for "compassion" in refusing to discuss his future immediately following that defeat, he on Sunday afternoon told a conference call he would not be seeking reappointment beyond his current contract which expires on December 31.

"It is no secret I have no relationship with the CEO and not much with the chairman", Cheika said.

One of the notable reactions to Cheika's departure came from Quade Cooper, the Melbourne Rebels fly-half who was not considered for selection since 2017. We weren't able to deliver consistency over the whole time.

Jones had offered his former Randwick clubmate an olive branch in the lead-up to the knockout match, describing Cheika as a "gold old mate" and expressing pride at what he had done with the Wallabies despite their struggles over the last four years.

Once again, Cheika was firm with his response.

"No, I don't think anyone would think that we have been satisfied with the results".

Sinckler's marauding display was matched by those of England's "kamikaze kids" Tom Curry and Sam Underhill, who put Australia's famed, ball-scavenging "Pooper" back-row combo of Michael Hooper and David Pocock in the shade.

While Dave Rennie remains the hot favourite to succeed Cheika as Wallabies coach, Castle said Rugby Australia had already started a process of finding the right man to succeed Cheika.

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika quit Sunday after their humiliating World Cup quarterfinal exit against England, reports said. "We're thinking of you up there, we love you Grandad Ted". "I was supposed to get this done for the people here and the Australians".

His plea for understanding didn't work. "We didn't do that and I've got to stand by what I said". "You want to be the best in the world, you have to beat the best".

Closer to home, the success of Australian rugby has always been tied to the Wallabies.

It is the first time in 12 years England have reached the semi-final, but it will be the last game in charge for Cheika.

Australia's game revolves around quick passing and slick handling.

Robbie Henshaw in the end keep Ireland on the board earlier than hooker Dane Coles gave a one-handed offload for George Bridge's strive as Recent Zealand went 41-7 ahead.

"Looking at the locks, Patrick (Tuipulotu) didn't play but he's been awesome for us in the tournament so far".

Steve Hansen's side allayed those fears with a blistering and bruising performance where they constantly drove Ireland back at the breakdown and in the tackle and never allowed them to get their close-running game going.

"So the whole sort of dramatic, yes this is the future of the sport, is just not realistic".

It sets up a mouth-watering showdown next Saturday in Yokohama, where top-ranked New Zealand will put their 18-match World Cup winning streak on the line against Eddie Jones's formidable English.
