Cheika, who has tasted success in the Rugby Championship, Super Rugby, Heineken Cup and PRO12, has come under criticism in Australia for the team’s string of disappointing results.
The Wallabies were World Cup finalists and more recently Rugby Championship runners-up, but since losing to New Zealand at Twickenham a year ago, there has been a six-match losing streak – including a 3-0 whitewash by England – and a record 42-6 defeat by the All Blacks, all at home.
