Jones confident Wallabies can still win RWC despite two losses in Rugby Championship

Despite registering two consecutive losses in the Rugby Championship over the last two weeks, Wallabies head coach Eddie Jones is still confident that his side can still win the Rugby World Cup later this year.

With one more game left to play, Jones now has a daunting task of trying to register at least one win before they head to France for the RWC and it surely will not be an easy one as it will be against the All Blacks.

Jones says at the moment, it seems like they are miles away from where they need to be but all this is only going to make the team harder and more hungry to get things right.

He adds they are a team that needs to change and they know that which is why he has the job of coaching the Wallabies.

Earlier this week, Jones had mentioned that they can beat the All Blacks in their upcoming Bledisloe Cup clash next week.

He says they have enough time to turn things around in this one week break and has warned the All Blacks to look out.

Meanwhile, captain James Slipper says with their performances like that from the previous two games, they will not go far at the RWC.

The Wallabies will host the All Blacks in Melbourne at 9.45pm next Saturday.

In another Rugby Championship clash, South Africa will host Argentina at 3.05am next Sunday.
