The Myanmar Times - - Sport -

Sydney — Mario Ledesma will leave his as­sis­tant coach­ing job with the Wal­la­bies to re­turn home and coach the Jaguares in Su­per Rugby.

The Aus­tralian Rugby Union said in a state­ment yes­ter­day that Ledesma will as­sume the head coach­ing role for the Jaguares after Aus­tralia’s third and fi­nal Bledis­loe Cup match against New Zealand in Bris­bane on Oct 21.

Ledesma, a 44-year-old former hooker, played 84 tests for Ar­gentina over 16 years be­fore cur­rent Wal­la­bies coach Michael Cheika — in his then-role as head coach of French side Stade Fran­cais — signed Ledesma as his as­sis­tant in Paris.

Ledesma then joined Cheika in Sydney at New South Wales Waratahs for the start of the 2015 Su­per Rugby sea­son be­fore sign­ing on as Aus­tralia’s for­wards coach ahead of the 2015 Rugby World Cup. – AP
