Jones has recently inked a four-year deal, and Rugby Australia’s CEO, Phil Waugh, has emphasized their desire to retain him for both the 2025 Lions tour and the 2027 World Cup.

“We're committed to Eddie in the commitment we made to him earlier in the year and we'll go through the assessment of this campaign,” said Waugh.

“It's been bitterly disappointing. We came here with a lot of hope and optimism. Everything is out of our hands. There's a lot that has probably been declining with Australian rugby for some time, so I think it's a result of a period where we are slipping more and more.

“I've been pretty forthright around the fact we are committed to Eddie and he probably looks at the campaign and is bitterly disappointed about his performance and the Wallabies' performance.

“It's a pretty challenging world being a coach and I can understand that. Eddie has made his comments to me that he is committed. I'm not going to find out where conversations are occurring. I take Eddie for his word and he has told us there is nothing to it.”

Woodward said: “He was a sponge and soaked up every single rugby union skill. By the end he was probably the best kicker out of hand we had, he laid the ball back at rucks perfectly and his tackle technique was perfect. What a player.”
