Last quote by Eddie Jones on World Cup

What I would like to find is someone like a Milner-Skudder, someone who comes out of the blue and gives you something so different in a World Cup year. I reckon now we have 80% of the squad about right but we're looking for the X-factor rookie to come out. There's a place for that sort of player and it could be someone like Marcus Smith. Who knows? I'm sure he's going to be good at shining George Ford's boots. He's an apprentice and he's come to learn about the game, so don't get too excited. You're going to get some fantastic shots of him polishing boots.feedback

You've got to be bullet-proof by the time you get to the tournament, good enough to win those games or you can't expect to win a World Cup. We've got to be able to be good enough to cope with the draw. I think it is good for us and it will keep us on our toes. It's where New Zealand have suffered previously. They had very easy pool games and, if you have easy games in the pools, it doesn't set you up for the quarter-finals.feedback

It will keep us on our toes. No one wants to get ahead of themselves but you need to be right for the knockout stages. In a World Cup, generally the most crucial game is the quarter-final because you are usually playing a team you should beat. And you've got to be at your best for that game. How do you expect to win a World Cup if you can't beat Wales in the quarter-final, even though they are a good team.feedback

I'm going to visit the temples because I need to pray. I need to pray really hard! You think it's difficult, but we're excited by it. It's not a a tough group, it's a good group. To win the World Cup you have to win seven games. We've got two very big games against France and Argentina so it's great preparation for getting to the final stages. We're looking forward to it. Australia showed in 2015 that the tough games helped them for the ones further ahead. Australia went past Ireland and Argentina in the knockout stage.feedback

We have focused particularly on youth because we want to find players who are going to be better than the 16 players going on the Lions tour. To win the World Cup we need to have the best talent; that is our ultimate destiny.feedback
