No quick decision on Deans future from ARU

The Australian Rugby Union will not be making a rush decision on the future of head coach Robbie Deans after the series loss to the British and Irish Lions.

Australian media have published several reports since Australia’s 41-16 loss in the deciding test to the British and Irish Lions on Saturday that the New Zealand-born Deans will be fired five months before his contract expires.

However Australian Rugby Union chief executive Bill Pulver says that he will not rush a decision through.

Local media say the Reds coach Ewen McKenzie and his Super Rugby counterpart at the Brumbies, South Africa-born Jake White, have already been approached by the ARU.

But Pulver says “there has been a lot of emotion and comment expressed from various areas … we will not be entering into any speculation or debate on the coaching issue at this stage.”

The Wallabies next play in the Rugby Championship beginning Aug. 17.
