New Zealander Rennie was sacked by Rugby Australia in January after managing a winning record of only 38 per cent since taking over the Wallabies in 2020.

Wesley Clarke was named defence coach of the Steelers, with fellow New Zealander Phil Healey, who worked with Rennie at the Waikato Chiefs and Glasgow Warriors, named head coach of “athletic performance”.
