Australia coach Michael Cheika upset by questions on future

Michael Cheika was upset by questions regarding his potential as Australia’s head coach after the World Cup defeat to England and asked for”a tiny bit of compassion”.
The Wallabies’ boss was speaking shortly after his side lost with a record-equalling margin of 40-16 to England within their quarter-final clash in Oita.
After taking Australia to the closing in 2015, the run of Cheika has been a challenging one. His future as head coach is still unknown and the topic dismayed him, once the question was put to him seeing what occurs next.
“I’m being honest, it’s a cruel world when you’re being asked these questions two minutes once we have been knocked out of a World Cup,” Cheika mentioned throughout his post-match press conference in Japan.
“And, in case you’d find it inside you to come across a small bit of empathy for those that are hurting to simply ask the more relevant questions.
“For me, I came here with only 1 idea in my mind about winning here and that idea has just disappeared today, not 15 or 20 seconds past.
“I know that that’s what the papers require, but perhaps whatever the news outlet can be, think about people’s feelings for a moment. Just chill”
England’s 23 unanswered points abandoned the Wallabies looking for answers that they were not able to find , after being down early in the second half.
“They have obviously got a certain way they play the game and I believed that we obtained a fair bit of their kick from this game,” Cheika added.
“They were not able to box-kick and pressure just as much on people. I thought that we handled that part but at which they were great was defence.
“We had our chance when we took that scrum down beneath the goal posts, that was the time to score. That instant was claimed by A moment at the World Cup and England.
“They were deserved winners plus they will be a handful entering the rest of the tournament”
Prior to the press conference was concluded there was one final question set to Cheika, again as head trainer.
Even though it had been prefaced with’I appreciated the time-frame’, it was pointed out that Cheika had previously said he wouldn’t look for re-appointment if Australia failed to win at the World Cup.
More, Cheika was firm with his response.
“If you appreciate the time-frame, then why ask this question? Well, once the time comes, I’ll tell them…
“They don’t need to understand now, it is not going to kill them. Sweet?”
