This has been a difficult time for Castle, with the global coronavirus pandemic exposing exactly how serious the game's cash crisis is in the country. 

Severe pay cuts have been employed throughout the organisation with Castle's leadership having come under the microscope in recent weeks while there were also reports that Rennie, who is due to start as Wallabies coach in July, was considering stepping away from the role as a result of the uncertainty. 

But, according to the Sydney Morning Herald, Castle has been given reassurance that Rennie is still on his way. 

"Dave is absolutely committed to Australia and I am absolutely committed to seeing the business through these difficult times and ensuring that we can see the Wallabies back playing Test matches with the new coaching team that we worked really hard to put together," she said.

Rennie is currently serving out his contract with Glasgow in the PRO14.
