More than 50 gamers put on Wallaby gold in 2014, while others consisting of Lachlan Swinton lost out totally, due to injuries.
But rugby is an outcomes driven sector.
Rennie called a 44-player Wallabies team for a four-day training school on the Gold Coast last month, yet was sacked soon after.
Western Force hire Tiatia claimed that several of the Wallabies gamers were “quite shocked” to listen to the information, as well as the 27-year-old agreed.
“I was quite shocked that he actually got released from the Wallabies. I talking to a few of the Wallaby boys and they were quite shocked too. They just finished up camp and there was no chat about it then,” Tiatia informed Rugby Pass
“I think they’ve made a little bit of a mistake there. He’s pretty good with building the culture and the chemistry.
“A pretty tough season last year with injuries but if all the boys get back on the field I’d say they’ll go well at the World Cup.”
Tiatia started his Super Rugby profession having fun under Rennie at the Chiefs, yet had a hard time to compel his means right into a gifted matchday team.
The outdoors back made his launching in Chiefs colours versus the British as well as Irish Lions in 2017, prior to relocating southern to the resources.
Tiatia started to struck his stride at the Hurricanes as an effect gamer off the bench, prior to asking for a very early launch to head back to Hamilton.
“The writing was on the wall at the Chiefs, there’s a lot of young guys coming through, Damian McKenzie coming back,” he included.
“I didn’t really want to play for any other New Zealand franchise for the season this year.
After a couple of seasons back at the Chiefs, he decided to take up an opportunity across the Tasman with the Western Force.
Force assistant coach Mark Ozich played a crucial role in the recruitment process after approaching Tiatia about the opportunity out west.
“(Ozich He finally moved over here and asked me if I was interested, if I was keen, then conversations developed. (Simon Cron) Crono and (Matt Hodgson) Hodgo started to chat to me and asked me if I was keen and showed me a plan for the next couple of years.
“I thought I’d be a good addition to the team. I agreed with what they were saying and liked the plan they have in store for the Force.
“Hopefully in the next couple of years we’re at the top, if not winning championships.”
