Nic White expressed his admiration for Eddie Jones 18 months ago, but now acknowledges that he has already had a few dinners with him. White learned a lot from Jones, both about what to do and what not to do. Despite Jones’ infectious energy and dedication, he experiments with certain strategies that didn’t work out well. White is among the players who have returned to training in Australia. In addition, he reflects on the chaotic and disappointing year the Wallabies have had. Even if they only won two of nine tests during the year, White feels that Australian rugby has the potential to be competitive again in the near future. He also believes that there is more to the Wallabies’ World Cup flop, as the team is capable of performing at a high level. White expresses frustration with Jones’ media presence and suggests transparency over his decision to go to Japan would have been better received.
