Wallabies boss Eddie Jones has made a bit of a name for himself over the years for his outspoken and sometimes outrageous comments.
The former England boss has never been afraid of speaking out, but some of what he has come out with over the years has left us scratching our heads, and his latest comments might just be right up there.
Jones recently named his 33-man Australia squad for the Rugby World Cup in France, with veterans Michael Hooper and Quade Cooper shockingly omitted, with Jones opting to go for youth.
Will Skelton was also named captain, in a surprise move, with youngster Carter Gordon named as the only recognised outhalf in his squad.
Australia haven’t gotten off to the best of starts under Jones, losing to South Africa and Argentina, before back-to-back defeats to the All Blacks in the Bledisloe Cup.
But despite all of this, Jones reckons his Wallabies side are good enough to win the World Cup in France this year, as well as the 2027 edition in four years’ time!
The sound bites keep on coming. Classic Eddie Jones.
“This squad is good enough to win this World Cup and possibly go on to win the next World Cup. That’s the advantage of picking young guys." @wallabies
