    Eddie Jones confirms 2023 Wallabies coaching staff

    Wallabies head coach Eddie Jones has confirmed the side’s coaching staff for the eToro Rugby Championship and Rugby World Cup in France.

    The highly experienced coach Brad Davis will assist Jones in coaching the attack, having previously held roles with Ospreys in the Pro14 and Bath and Wasps in the English Premiership.

    He is currently coaching at London Irish and is proud to be coaching his country.

    A former professional Rugby League player in the 1990s and 2000s, Davis played over 200 games in the English Super League before moving into Rugby coaching in 2006.

    Current ACT Brumbies assistant and former Wallabies prop Dan Palmer has been brought on board as lineout coach and will work closely with Neal Hatley who was announced as forwards coordinator earlier this year. Hatley is set to link up with the team following the conclusion of the English Premiership where he is currently working with Bath.

    Frenchman Pierre-Henry Broncan has been appointed as a maul consultant. The 48-year-old former Castres boss took his side to the French Top 14 final last year and boasts coaching experience with Stade Toulouse and also worked at Bath Rugby in England for two years as a scout and analyst. The maul is an important part of the Wallabies’ attack.

    Meanwhile, former Wallabies flyhalf Berrick Barnes will join the ranks on a part-time basis as a kicking consultant.

    The former Red and Waratah made his Test debut at the 2007 World Cup in France and was also part of the Wallabies 2011 Rugby World Cup squad, going on to play 51 Tests.

    Jones has also finalised his strength and conditioning team with the former head of England’s strength and conditioning program Jon Clarke to lead the S&C team with former Scarlets and Canberra Raiders coach Nigel Ashley-Jones as an assistant. John Pryor also returns to the Wallabies set up as a speed consultant, while Warrick Harrington remains in his role as sport scientist.

    Wallabies head coach Eddie Jones said: “We believe we have a quality coaching staff to plan and prepare the team for a Smash and Grab campaign, winning the Bledisloe Cup and finishing winning the Rugby World Cup."

    "It is experienced, diverse and adaptable. Ready to Smash and Grab." 2023 Wallabies Coaching Staff

    Too many bloody mungos.

    But one of Jones's favourite mungos missed out. Rylesy. He'll be busy at Kogarah when Hook gets hooked.

    I reckon he'd be nuts to take it on; but the contract terms might be too big to turn down.

    5 year deal and the media rumour machine says Shane Richardson is going as well to help rebuild the side as director of footy.

    Haven't been this hopeful as a Dragons fan in years.

    I'm sure reality will crush that.
