Australia's head coach, Michael Chieka named Wallabies squad for the upcoming rugby Championship tournament that kicks off later this month.
The Wallabies have a new skills Coach Mick Byrne who spent the past few years sharpening the skills of New Zealand (AllBlacks) but is now in the Wallabies technical bench as the assistant coach.
Australia lost to New Zealand in the Rugby World cup last year and Chieka says he will not ask Mick Bryne about New Zealand's secrets. He believes Mick joined them because he’s brilliant at helping develop skills.
