The Waratahs said Friday they will name a new coach in the coming weeks.

Tahs's coach Daryl Gibson stepped down on Friday.

With Bernard Foley, Kurtley Beale, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Nick Phipps, Sekope Kepu and Tatafu Polota-Nau all likely to be off or already confirmed departures at the end of the season, the new coach will have something of a rebuilding job to do.

The other Waratahs assistants who could be considered for a promotion are former Wallabies halfback Chris Whitaker and Welshman Steve Tandy.

"It's clear we are entering a new cycle in New South Wales Rugby, we've got this wave of young, vibrant talent - some real gold nuggets - coming through in the next three or four years".

Gibson will leave the club after a season of lost opportunities and one sadly marred by a series of off-field controversies, chiefly Folau's bitter fight with Rugby Australia. He was instrumental in the Waratahs' 2014 title-winning campaign.

Carroll claims that she fought off Trump before she was able to flee from the dressing room and out of the store. Carroll has said that the rape happened in a Bergdorf Goodman changing room, in NY , in the mid 1990s.

Folau became Super Rugby's all-time leading try-scorer with his 60th five-pointer in a narrow round-eight loss to the Blues in Auckland in April.

"Having been here for seven years, it's time for a new voice, a new direction, a new game style as new players come into the team".

Having just completed a six-match suspension, Latu was found asleep at the wheel of a moving vehicle last month before registering a 0.135 blood alcohol reading.

The Wallabies have announced that former Leinster player Shaun Berne will join their coaching staff ahead of the Rugby World Cup in Japan.

The 40-year old, who played 23 times for Leinster between 2009 and 201, has replaced the Munster-bound Stephen Larkham as attack coach.
