Former Wallaby Jeremy Paul said on New Zealand radio that he had signed with a Kiwi team, while there were even comments on a Queensland Radio station that Ewen McKenzie was closing the books on his Reds role to get ready to assume the post as the new Wallabies coach.
It seems a loss to the All Blacks is now rugby's poisoned chalice, but New Zealand coach Steve Hansen told LIVESport yesterday there needed to be perspective as the Wallabies had lost to the best team in the world.
"They're still the No 2 side in the world," Hansen said.
"He's copping a lot of flack for losing to us, rather than people looking at the bigger picture."
The Australian Rugby Union told the Sydney Morning Herald that Deans was still committed to being Wallabies coach.
'There is no substance to the rumour about Robbie Deans standing down to take up a job in New Zealand,' the ARU said.
