Jones an outspoken commentator on the state of Australian rugby, says “This Saturday’s game is critical beyond evaluation for the health of Australian Rugby”,
“The Wallabies will be up against it, but Michael Cheika is a red-blooded fighter and I’m sure he will send out a red-blooded Australian team.”
