Reports In Australia Suggest Dave Wessels Has A New Job And It’s Not With Munster

With Rassie Erasmus’ impending departure, speculation has been flying around as to who will take over Munster when the South African departs.

The province are clearly casting the net far to find a replacement, and there were reports strongly linking former Western Force head coach Dave Wessels to the role.

However, according to reports emerging from Australia, this isn’t the case.

The Australian is stating that Wessels has aired his desire to go to Melbourne to coach Super Rugby outfit, the Rebels.

“My dream has always been to coach professional rugby and it’s Australian rugby that’s given me that opportunity.

“From a loyalty perspective — and I know we haven’t had the greatest couple of months here in Perth with all the speculation about the Force — but the position I’m in, I owe it in large part to the people within Australian rugby.

“A lot of the (Force) staff and players will now have the opportunity to come with us to Melbourne and I feel that if I turned my back on Australia now, I would live the rest of my life wondering where it could have ended up.”

These quotes suggest that Munster is a non-runner for the Cape Town native, as the Thomond Park outfit must look elsewhere in search of a new head coach.
