For Captain Slipper: ‘With performances like this we won’t go far in the Rugby World Cup’
Everyone saw him banging his fists on the table in the coaching staff’s box during Australia and Argentina, ripping out his headphones.
However, even after the 31-34 that the Wallabies suffered against the Pumas inside the friendly walls of Sydney Stadium, Eddie Jones remained positive in front of reporters, in the post-match press conference.
“It’s a bad defeat, – admitted the Australian coach, – but in ten days we can become a completely different team, and that’s the point.”
Today we tried to play more freely, with more decision making Entrust the players, but at the moment we cannot be fluid.

Jones, who has been the Wallabies head coach since the start of 2023, recalls making his second game off the bench with the national team in green and golden.
“We’re not in the position we need to be in either because of some players who have recently returned from long-term injuries, but that’s no excuse for today’s performance. We have to be able to make better decisions with the ball and be better at coming out of the line aggressively to put more pressure on with the ball.” Our defense.
However, the moment of anger remains in the booth in the eye, which occurred when Rob Valettini responded to an Argentine foul with a slam dunk, earning one of 14 free kicks taken by referee Jaco Pepper against the Wallabies.
Indiscipline was a decisive factor in the defeat, with James Slipper, Australia’s captain for the occasion, emphasizing with bitter realism: “We have to be able to change in that regard. Many of us have to individually review mistakes made and correct their behavior quickly with such performances.” We won’t get much in the Rugby World Cup.”
