Ex-international rugby player Drew Mitchell has proposed that Eddie Jones’ confrontational interaction with a journalist may have been nothing more than a diversion from the Wallabies’ disappointing performance against the Springboks. Following a crushing 43-12 loss in Pretoria, Jones referred to the journalist as a “smart arse” after he inquired about facing a supposedly weaker team. Mitchell remarked on the incident on Nine’s Sports Sunday, suggesting that it may have been a strategic move by Jones to shift the focus away from the poor performance. Mitchell also acknowledged that the journalist’s question contained a hint of playfulness, and expressed his support for Jones’ response. The match itself saw the Wallabies struggle against the dominant Springboks, with the home team scoring six tries and the Wallabies only managing to salvage a consolation try. Mitchell criticized the Wallabies’ lackluster performance, attributing it to a failure to play to their own strengths and adapt to the Springboks’ style of play. However, Mitchell believed that the Wallabies would have an opportunity for redemption in their upcoming match against Argentina. Overall, Mitchell acknowledged the disappointment surrounding the loss to the Springboks but emphasized the chance to bounce back in the next game.
