results and fast !
We want results, and fast ! It is our state of mind-no excuses and the bottom from the starthammered the coach in a video call.
Appointed at the end of November to the end of the world Cup 2019, to succeed Michael Cheika at the head of the Wallabies, Rennie was released in late may by the Glasgow Warriors, which he led for four seasons.

For Rennie, the change of generation is a chance to prepare a new basis for the next world Cup in France in 2023, while Australia hopes to win the organization of the edition 2027.
The international calendar that awaits Rennie is still vague : there is uncertainty on the likelihood of resumption of the Rugby Championship which is struggling as the nations of the Southern hemisphere (New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Argentina). A possibility is that the Australia and New Zealand’s nearby compete four times in the course of the year.
Against the All Blacks, who have removed the Rugby Championship seven times on the last eight editions (South Africa triumphed in 2019 before lifting later the world Cup),
is a very good indicator of the path he left for us to do. The more we play against the All Blacks, the better it iswas it insured on Monday from a hotel room in Auckland, where he was held Monday in quatorzaine since his arrival in Europe.
We have not had a lot of success against them over the past 15 years and we need to put ourselves under pressure against the best, he added.
To compete, he believes that the Wallabies must improve their physical condition and their ability to get back on their feet more quickly to defend.
If one works hard, one to the other, we will be able to put a wall in the face of opposing teams and defend for long periods of time and, hopefully, we create scoring opportunities. It’s the same in attack, he explained, saying want
focus on physical fitness and the acquisition of skills under pressure.
