The defense coach leaves the team as the delicate double confrontation with the world champions approaches
The difficult defeat suffered by Argentina from 48 to 17 had dire consequences at home in Australia. Not only on the field, due to the numerous injuries that forced the technical staff to call up many players for the national team who were absent from the stadiums for some time, but also at the managerial level. It was reported Friday that defense coach Matt Taylor will be leaving his position with immediate effect.

Taylor has worked alongside Dave Rainey since the latter took over in 2020, and has now left for so-called “personal reasons”. Australian Rugby said: “After more than 10 years and 110 Tests, Matt Taylor is leaving the team immediately. There was a working discussion with Rennie after which it was decided that this was the best solution for both of us. A replacement will be announced in due course.”
Dave Rainey himself added: “Matt Taylor is a fantastic professional with the best work ethic. He and the team will miss him, it was a pleasure working with him.”
