Speaking to a conference Rennie stressed the need to have more discussions behind closed doors.


“An enormous amount of stuff has come out in the press and that’s one thing I’d like to stop. A lot of discussions need to happen behind closed doors.” Rennie said.

‘But there are lots of good things happening in Australian rugby,’ he added.The former Glasgow Warriors headcoach commented on the support super rugby has given them in terms of players.

“The Super Rugby coaches have given us a lot of access to the players and we’ve done a lot of work with those guys.”

Rennie was appointed as Australian boss in November 20 2019. He has coached Glasgow Warriors, New Zealand under 20 and Chiefs.
