Eddie Jones resigns as Wallabies coach

From Morning Report, 8:54 am on 1 November 2023

The coach of Australia's rugby team, the Wallabies, has resigned after a disastrous run at the World Cup in France.

Eddie Jones was appointed in January to much fanfare in Australia - only weeks after being sacked as head coach of England.

Jones says he's leaving because Rugby Australia could not commit the "financial and political" resources needed to change Australian rugby.

But Rugby Australia boss Phil Waugh says Jones' departure is a "sensible outcome".

Former Wallaby and sports columnist Peter FitzSimons spoke to Corin Dann.
