    Rugby Australia confirms details of external review into Wallabies World Cup exit

    Former captain Andrew Slack is amongst the three-member panel that will look into the Wallabies’ performance environment after their World Cup exit.

    Watch every game of Super Rugby Pacific LIVE on Stan Sport. Start watching Stan Sport now.

    Slack captained the Grand Slam-winning Wallabies in 1984 and led Australia at the inaugural 1987 Rugby World Cup at home.

    The Wallabies Hall of Famer will be joined by fellow legend and RUPA CEO Justin Harrison along with former AIS Deputy Director (Performance, People and Teams) Darlene Harrison, with a Pasifika advisor also set to support the panel and process.

    “As Rugby fans, we were all disappointed in the results at the World Cup – the performance was not good enough for a proud Rugby nation like ours,” said RA CEO Waugh in a statement.

    “We had a new coach, new staff and a lot of new players – many of whom have only just started their careers, and who will be the future stars of Australian Rugby.

    “Andrew, Justin and Darlene are highly respected, and I believe they possess the credentials to be able to deliver a thorough and considered external review.”

    The Wallabies endure one of their least successful years in history, winning just two of their nine games

    The side missed the knockout stages of the World Cup for the first time in history after losses to Wales and Fiji.

    This saw coach Eddie Jones step down at the start of the week after taking over in January.

    “The Wallabies have a proud history as one of Australia’s most loved sporting teams, and it is our responsibility as custodians to continually seek to improve performance and deliver a world-class program," Waugh added.

    The panel aims to deliver its recommendations to the Rugby Australia board before the end of the year.

    I can get behind Andrew Slack as a Queenslander (ie not establishment in the pure sense) and Darlene Harrison as independent, but Goog with both NSW roots and RUPA representation is poor.

    You don't hear a lot from Slack. But when you do he comes across as very much a straight shooter regardless of Qld roots. So no problems there. Ms Harrison's CV would seem appropriate.

    Someone who's nickname derives from being a "bad egg" is likely to have earned such an epithet. He's done nothing publicly to lay it to rest.

    You forgot to blame everything on blokes who've already left the building.

    I dont have a problem with Harrison on the review team. As President of the Players Association, he is the ideal representative of the World Cup Playing Squad.

    The players were on the field (obviously). Our failings at the RWC aren't all because of E who should not be Jonesd. The squad has a case to answer as well.
