Former Australia boss Robbie Deans has been appointed head coach of Japanese champions Panasonic Wild Knights.

Deans, 54, has been out of work since ending his five-and-a-half year spell with the Wallabies in July following the 2-1 series loss to the British and Irish Lions.

The New Zealander, who led the Canterbury Crusaders to five Super Rugby titles before moving to Australia, had been an advisor to the Japanese champions for the last 10 seasons and will take charge on May 1.

Japan coach Eddie Jones, also a former Australia boss, said: "Having a multi-winning Super Rugby coach come to Japan and coach the leading team here can only be good for Japanese rugby as the players there get some really good coaching."
