The Wallabies have released Robbie Deans from his two year contract, announcing Ewen McKenzie has his successor.
Deans still had six months left on his two year deal, but will not take the Wallabies into the upcoming Rugby Championship. Instead, McKenzie is expected to be unveiled as the new head coach tomorrow.
McKenzie led the Reds to Super Rugby glory in 2011, and revealed earlier in the year that he would not continue with the Reds beyond this year.
McKenzie apparently saw off a strong challenge from Jake White for the Australian coaching job.Tweet
