Wales caretaker boss Scott Johnson has reiterated that any decision about his coaching future "goes deeper than rugby".

Johnson , who was put in charge of Wales on a three-match basis following Mike Ruddock’s departure, is expected to return to Australia following this season’s Six Nations Championship.

Newly-appointed Wallabies supremo John Connolly has reportedly targeted him for a place in his coaching team, and Johnson confirmed they will meet up when the former Bath supremo visits Britain in the coming weeks.

Johnson though, also has pressing family issues to contend with in Australia, which look likely to speed up a return Down Under later this month following Wales’ final Six Nations games against Italy and France.

"If ‘Knuckles’ (Connolly) is coming over, I am sure he will pay me a visit, there will be no doubt about that," said Johnson.

"I think it is a privilege that I’ve been put in charge here (Wales) for a little while. I love this country, I love this team and it has played a really important part of my life.

"But this all goes deeper than rugby. Whether they put me in charge of Cambodia or they put me in charge of Wales, it wouldn’t affect my decision.

"This is not about Scott Johnson, this is about other people. I wish people would start believing me when I say that."
