The former Crusaders and Wallabies rugby coach Robbie Deans is set to re-start his coaching career in Japan.

A Japanese rugby website is reporting New Zealander Deans will be the new manager of the Panasonic Wild Knights club.

The 54-year-old was sacked by the Australian Rugby Union after the Wallabies lost the British and Irish Lions test series 2-1 last June.
