Michael Cheika aimed a cheeky barb at compatriot Eddie Jones after Australia warmed up for their potential Rugby World Cup quarter-final with England with a stuttering display against Georgia.
The Wallabies defeated the eastern European side 27-8 in their last game in Pool D on Friday, and Cheika claims likely last eight opponents England will be refreshed after a week off – their final pool clash against France was called off over the weekend due to Typhoon Hagibis.
“Well, I saw that he (Eddie Jones) was saying that that would be an advantage in that the Typhoon gods were smiling on him, so I suppose they’d better win,” said Cheika.
“They’ve had the best preparation according to the coach, so they better get out there and win. That’s the best possible preparation. We’ll see how we go.”
