Munster miss out on coach Dave Wessels

Munster miss out on coach Dave Wessels”

However, Munster is still expected to announce their new head coach within the next two weeks, the Leader understands.

However, The Sydney Morning Herald have tonight (today for them) confirmed that Wessels will instead take the head coaching job at Super Rugby side Melbourne Rebels which will be officially confirmed on Friday.

Munster have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Dave Wessels, the South African coach, who now looks set to remain in Australia.

For me, the decision was driven by a strong feeling of unfinished business in Super Rugby. "I feel a huge amount of loyalty to Australian rugby and I'm just very grateful that Melbourne offered me this opportunity".

"Part of repaying this faith is realising the success that I know we're capable of".

"Make no mistake, our goal is to win Super Rugby".

"We're finalising an exciting group of coaches and players who will not only contribute to building an enviable and winning culture at the club, but who will progress us towards that ultimate goal".

Wessels was a former assistant coach to Rassie Erasmus at South African Super Rugby side, the Stormers.

The former defensive consultant went on to explain how, in spite of the residual bitterness in Perth that the Rebels survived while his former club, the Western Force, were forced out of Super Rugby, he perceived the current narrative as "Force and the Rebels against the rest of Australian rugby".

However, in an interview in the Australian newspaper, Wessels has confirmed that he is set to continue his coaching career in Australia with the Rebels.

Speaking to Wayne Smith in The Australian this evening, Wessels revealed that he wasn't quite ready to turn his back on the country which gave him his big break.

There was also the possibility that a number of Force players would jump ship and follow Wessels to whatever club he ended up at.

"I'm not sure", he said when asked when the No 8 will return to action.
