Australia’s coach, Eddie Jones has said that he has no doubt that Australia (the Wallabies) would beat Wales at the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
The Wallabies lost 22-15 to Fiji and will be on the brink of World Cup pool stage elimination for the first time if they are defeated by Wales.
Wales sit comfortably at the top of pool C after beating Portugal and Fiji, taking maximum points. But Jobes knows that Australia has to win.
“I’ve got no doubt we’ll win on Sunday,” said Jones.
Jones also insisted he believes the Wallabies can still win the World Cup.
“The way the team’s prepared and came together, I’ve got no doubt we’ll win on Sunday,” said Eddie.
“But if we don’t, sometimes you’ve got to do the work that allows you to be successful further down the track.
“If we beat Wales on Sunday we’re alive and that’s all we’ve got to be. We were always going to get this game at some stage, it’s just come a little bit earlier than we thought it would.
“We’ve got an opportunity to show whether we can fight and grind out to get the result we need. I’m confident we can.”
Eddie replaced Dave Rennie as Wallabies coach before the World Cup but he has only won a game out of seven matches.
“I’ve been clear I’ve been brought in to change Australian rugby,” said Jones.
“I’m bringing through a young team that can be the basis going forward. I’ve explained that clearly and we’ve needed to move players on.
“Sometimes you’ve got to take some hard decisions to get results further down the track. I don’t know of any team you can come in and blow magic over.
“You’ve got to go through a process and find out what’s wrong with the team and try to address those problems.
“I sit here comfortably feeling like I’m doing the job I should be. I know people are upset about it, and I understand that and wouldn’t be too happy as a fan, because results aren’t good enough, but sometimes there’s some pain before you get some success.
“I don’t think anyone ever accepts a rebuild. Everyone wants results and wants them immediately. All I can say to the fans is we’re working every day to get better and there’s no more I can ask from my players and coaches.”
