Gloucester boss Laurie Fisher believes Wallabies coach Michael Cheika is on the right track with his plans to take the side to the top of world rugby again.

The former Brumbies director of rugby feels Cheika must use Super Rugby assistants and not head coaches to help boost the Wallabies.

Fisher attended a Wallabies training session in Cardiff on Wednesday and met Cheika afterwards.

Cheika invited Australia’s Super Rugby head coaches to join the Wallabies on their end-of-year tour to Europe but they all declined due to their pre-season training commitments with their franchises.

“I think it’s great to try to involve [Super Rugby] coaches as much as possible, it’s a noble idea and to involve them in the process is a great idea,” Fisher told Rugby Heaven.

“I think it’s difficult for head coaches to be involved, but I don’t see why assistants couldn’t be.

“Cheika is very clear in what he wants and how he wants to play, they train as he wants them to play.

“It’s been a really worthwhile day being here and having a look.

“[The Wallabies] just need a clear plan, we’ve got good players we just have to demand more of them and have them know exactly what’s expected of them.”
