After Australia’s unexpected loss to Fiji in the Rugby World Cup, Eddie Jones was at a loss for words.

For the first time ever at a World Cup, Australia suffered a defeat to a Pacific Island country, which could mean elimination in their pool match against Wales the following weekend.

Eddie Jones was unable to explain why Australia’s players were “off it” as the Wallabies lost shockingly to Fiji 22-15 in Saint-Etienne, leaving their Rugby World Cup hopes in tatters.

Fiji’s delirious players burst into song at full time as they celebrated victory a week after their own narrow loss to the Welsh.
The Australians lost to a Pacific Island nation for the first time at a World Cup, leaving them facing potential elimination in next weekend’s pool match against Wales.

They outperformed us at the ruck, which made the difference in a close game like that, according to former England coach Jones.
We had a bad day today for some reason.
Even though we outperformed ourselves in the stats, we only had two tries to one. There needs to be some introspection, which makes the match against Wales quite significant.

Following their 28-8 victory over Portugal on Saturday, Wales is now in first place in Pool C with two wins from two games. Australia has always succeeded in making it out of the pool stages, but they now risk having their worst World Cup performance ever.

“Credit to Fiji, it was a class performance from them,” said Captain David Poreki.
Credit to them; they have players of the highest caliber at the breakdown. We have to lick our wounds and get ready for Wales quickly, but that won’t be difficult because it’s the World Cup.

Simon Raiwalui, the head coach of Fiji, led his team to their first victory over Australia in 69 years after Fiji had dropped 17 of their previous 18 games against the Wallabies.
As a result, Raiwalui was almost as surprised as Jones by the outcome.

I’m emotionally spent, he said.
We know each other well and they are a great Australian team, but I am so proud of the boys.
We were left in the dark until the very end.

They put in a lot of effort, and we pushed them to their limits, but they never complained.
