Wallabies boss Michael Cheika wasn’t in the best of form following Australia’s narrow 25-29 loss to Wale in the Rugby World Cup this morning.
Wales led Australia 23-8 at half-time in their massive pool encounter, with the game almost dead and buried following some controversial decisions by referee Romain Poite.
But the Aussies fought back with two second-half tries and a penalty to trail by just one point with less than ten minutes to go. In the end though it was Wales who would emerge victorious and Cheika was not happy.
“Any positives we take we’ll keep to ourselves because we were looking good in the scrum tonight, got penalised, I’m not sure maybe Australia is not allowed to scrum any good.” he said after the game.
“So we’ll just keep them to ourselves.”
“I know you’re expecting me to go so I’ll just keep my powder dry and we’ll see where we end up. Thanks mate.”
