Nic White Shuns Dinner with Eddie Jones, Supports Australian Rugby and Western Force Success

Eighteen months ago, Nic White stated that Eddie Jones would be the first person he would love to have dinner with. At present, he says that wouldn’t be the case as energy was contagious. He feels that Eddie experimented with a few things in 2023 from which he learned a lot, both positive and negative. Nic White is glad that he met Eddie and had dinner with him a few times. 28 players returned from training paddocks across Australia. Nic White talks about the year being long and interesting. He reflects on the year where Wallabies missed the knockout stages for the first time. White didn’t skirt around a subject and talked about the brutal axing of Dave Rennie and the havoc Australian rugby went through. The Wallabies only managed two wins from nine Tests throughout the year. Nic White states that the Wallabies struggled defensively under Jones and didn’t quite get used to his game plan. He acknowledged that it was an experiment that did not work and stated that Australian rugby isn’t in as bad shape as their World Cup flop suggests. Lastly, White talked about moving on from the past and how linking up with the Western Force has given him a new lease on life.
