Australia have confirmed Scott Wisemantel will join the backroom staff as attack coach of the Wallabies.

Wisemantel has previously worked as skills coach of Australia between 2004 and 2007 and recently left England's attack coach role under Eddie Jones at the conclusion of the World Cup in Japan.

The 49-year-old, who played for Parramatta Eels in Rugby League and Eastwood Rugby Club in Rugby Union has signed a four-year deal and will be part of Dave Rennie's new-look backroom staff.

Wisemantel started his coaching career with Japan's Toyota Verblitz in 1999 and has worked with AS Montferrand, New South Wales Waratahs, Lyon and Montpellier in the past. He has also been skills coach of Australia between 2004 and 2007 and was appointed interim Japan head coach in 2013 and was assistant to Eddie Jones during the 2015 World Cup.

"I'm really looking forward to returning home to Australia after 10 years and for the opportunity to work alongside Dave Rennie," he said.

"I've learnt a few things from working with various programs around the world and it's given me another perspective on how to view the game as an attack coach.

"Historically, the Wallabies have been innovative in how they play the game and how they attack so I want to bring that to the table."
