Wallabies Wary Of Ghosts Of England Past As They Seek To Avoid Relapse

Posted by

The Wallabies’ demise began with a 3-0 loss to England on home turf in 2016 – and victory against Eddie Jones’s side at Twickenham this weekend will demonstrate that they are truly on the mend.

After reaching the final of the 2015 World Cup against the All Blacks, the Wallabies were swiftly knocked back down to earth by England. From there, it was all downhill.

The Wallabies were knocked out of the 2019 World Cup in the quarter-final by England, resulting in the sacking of Michael Cheika, who lost all seven Tests he coached against Jones, his old Randwick colleague.

The Wallabies showed hints of improvement under new coach Dave Rennie when they upset world champions South Africa and Argentina in the Rugby Championship during a five-Test winning streak, but their momentum was halted by a 15-13 setback to Scotland last weekend. The Wallabies must now defeat England to demonstrate that their loss at Murrayfield was a fluke and that they have not regressed.
