Waratahs boss Michael Cheika does not believe he should reconsider his dual role with the Sydneysiders and the Wallabies after Sunday's loss to the Western Force.

Cheika is in the spotlight after opting to stay on with the champions despite taking over the reins as Wallabies coach towards the end of 2014.

And after the Waratahs' 25-15 loss to the Force in Sydney, Cheika gave an abrupt reply when he was asked if he would revaluate his role with the Wallabies.

"No. It's irrelevant that stuff," he said.

"This is about what's happening in training and how or what our plan is. None of that has anything to do with it.

"But I'm sure that you'll trot that one out as well… The reality is there is plenty of time to be focusing on what you need to win rugby matches.

"And that's partly myself and the players getting our heads on and saying 'this is the area we need to be good at against this team' and making sure that happens."
