Australia coach Michael Cheika says it is too premature to choose whether he will resign following his sides defeat by England at the World Cup quarter-final.
The Wallabies 40-16 are comprehensively beaten by england at Oita.
Cheika, who shot in 2014 as Australia coach and led them into the closing in 2015, said when his contract ends this year when his side didnt win the World Cup he would walk off.
If the time comes, Ill tell them, he said.
They dont have to know today.
When requested in their own post-match interview when he had been planning to quit, he said journalists mustconsider peoples feelings for a moment.
I came here with a single thought in my mind about winning here and that thought has vanished now, he further added.
Two tries in the first half of Jonny May and scores for Kyle Sinckler and Anthony Watson in the next took England for 12 years to their initial semi-final.
Marika Koroibete had set the Wallabies within a point soon after half-time after Sincklers try, plus they also had an opportunity near the England try-line soon but the ball turned over.
Im really disappointed, Cheika said. I envision most of Australians will soon be.
Were just not clinical enough to complete off chances and they defended very well.
Sometimes you have just got to suck on that up and wear it. That is life.
The match will also likely be the last Test for Australia rear row David Pocock and scrum-half May Genia who said they would retire following the World Cup from internationals.
Captain Michael Hooper said itspretty gutting to not triumph for the outgoing players and Australia lovers.
Were really mad, the flanker said.
We emptied everything to the and didnt get it that is pretty gutting for a great deal of factors.
Firstly, lots of our men are leaving and, second, we have had a wonderful service base to drive us together.
To be unable to do it for ourselves and them is fairly gutting.
