Australia head coach Michael Cheika has taken himself out of the running to become the next England boss, saying he is happy with the Wallabies.

The former Leinster coach, who won the Rugby Championship and finished runner-up in the Rugby World Cup this year, was linked with the position.

But when speaking as head coach of the Barbarians ahead of Tuesday's fixture against Gloucester at Kingsholm, the Australian rubbished the rumours.

"No-one has contacted me, and they know they can't contact me because I'm committed to Australia," he told BBC Sport.

"I'm an Australian coaching Australia. It's the dream. There is nothing that would change my mind."
