The Wallabies are back in winning form and ready to win the Rugby World Cup in Japan next year.
That’s the message today from rugby union’s governing body, Rugy Australia.
Sunday morning local time, the boys in gold took on the Pumas at altitude in Argentina and at halftime, looked to be going down in spectacular, career-ending fashion.
However, the Wallabies clawed their way back from 31-7 at the break to finish on top by fulltime.
The 45-34 victory is proof, Rugby Australia says, that there’s nothing wrong with their organisation and the national team is now on the rebound back to the top.
“Everything is fine,” said Rugby CEO Raelene Castle.
“I know that Cheika and the boys have been under a lot of pressure recently. Because the current run of bad form is entirely their fault and not evidence of a systemic, cultural and structural corporate bin fire at the governing body,”
“It would be inaccurate to say that. We have the best rugby facilities in the world. It’s been raining in Sydney and Brisbane all weekend so the grassroots have been watered, don’t worry about that. The Wallabies have the ABs up next in Japan and I can say with a straight face that they’re going to win this time.”
More to come.
