"I think during the year I had a change of heart around exactly where the team is and where the list is at", Gibson said of the about-face on his contract extension.

WARATAHS coach Daryl Gibson is set to announce his resignation this afternoon following a dismal 2019 Super Rugby season.

"It's time for another coach to take them on that journey, I'm a one-year prospect and I believe another coach needs to own that".

"During discussions around our list, it became really apparent that we are entering a new cycle in NSW Rugby", Gibson said.

The most obvious in-house replacement, Simon Cron, will not be an option as he is expected to link with outgoing All Blacks coach Steve Hansen at Toyota Verblitz in Japan.

The former New Zealand centre chose to move on after the Waratahs failed to reach the Super Rugby quarter-finals.

Federer survives scare against Tsonga
Federer was able to regain his composure and take the third and final set 7-5 to advance to the quarter-final. Alexander Zverev progressed with a 6-3 7-5 defeat of Steve Johnson and will now come up against David Goffin .

Gibson will leave the club after a season of lost opportunities and one sadly marred by a series of off-field controversies, chiefly Folau's bitter fight with Rugby Australia.

This season was heavily disrupted by the protracted sacking for his social media posts of Israel Folau - the most prolific try-scorer in Super Rugby history - and the Waratahs finished with a 6-10 record. But that was the last game the dual worldwide played after having his multi-million-dollar four-year contract torn up over his tweets.

To great frustration to Gibson and the team, the Tahs lost six games by eight points or less and three by three points or less.

Michael Cheika has bolstered his Wallabies coaching staff ahead of the Rugby World Cup, adding former Waratahs fly-half Shaun Berne the team effective immediately.

In addition to the Folau firestorm, Gibson and the Waratahs had to contend with Latu's drink-driving drama.

He described the idea that he might reunite with Cheika at the Wallabies, who had not had an attack coach since Stephen Larkham was sacked in February, as "interesting" but that position was taken by Shaun Berne later on Friday.
