Former Wallabies coach Eddie Jones may have inadvertently robbed a generation of Australian rugby players of their attacking instincts, NSW Waratahs boss Daryl Gibson says.

Jones achieved much success as Test coach, guiding Australia to the 2001 Tri Nations title, Bledisloe Cup glory in 2002 and the 2003 Rugby World Cup final in Sydney.

But his Wallabies adopted a highly structured approach that Gibson said was now "very pervasive in the schooling system", resulting in a crop of players whose decision-making skills aren't the equal of their New Zealand counterparts...

..."It's a structural thing. The difficulty for us is, I think, the Eddie Jones era of playing ABC-certain type of rugby. That lack of decision making has had an effect on Australian rugby in the fact that it's very pervasive in the schooling system.

"And then so we tend to get our boys at 18 and probably their skills are very good but they're just missing that decision-making [skill] in an open environment."

Im sure Eddie's coaching methods have moved on since then - its a few years ago now.

but having said that I think his structure is going to be good for England, but he has been vocal about players decision making aswell.

A Kiwi states that Aussies are inferior to them. Shock, horror!

It also looks a little like a coach trying to divert attention from his teams current performances.

did say the eddie jones era... not eddie jones.

Eddie Jones was the coach of AUS at the time... not every academy, every school, every club.

Especially the week after his New South Wales team is beaten by a team from Melbourne.

Probably some truth in it, but this suits English players extremely well in my view. In his current gig that is a strength not a weakness.

This guys own career is neither here nor there; obviously it's a hell of a lot easier to identify 'problems' than to solve them!
