Eddie Jones wants victory but warns his squad not to underestimate a Wallabies side with the lowest of expectations
England will probably never encounter a Wallabies side surrounded by such low expectations. Not only have Saturday’s Twickenham visitors omitted the gifted Kurtley Beale and his old mate Adam Ashley-Cooper for breaching the team’s disciplinary code, but their key breakdown threat David Pocock has failed to recover from a neck injury. Michael Cheika has never had a blacker Friday as a head coach.
For his opposite number, Eddie Jones, however, kick-off can hardly arrive quickly enough. Should his team conclude their calendar year in emphatic fashion, the southern hemisphere will be left with much to ponder over their Christmas barbies.
