Wallabies to bring in scrum doctor

Date published: December 24 2014

Michael Cheika’s reconstruction of Australia’s scrum is set to be aided by renowned scrum guru, according to reports.

The Wallabies set-piece struggled in their last Test of the year against England at Twickenham, prompting a response from Chieka to address the area.

Andrew Blades is already installed as Cheika’s forwards coach but some more in-depth expertise is now set to be brought in.

Sources have hinted that the addition will be a big name, with Cheika looking to finalise his staff next month.

The Wallabies suffered Test defeats to France, Ireland and England while on tour in November, along with winning against Wales.
