Wallabies news, Australian rugby crisis, Bob Dwyer, Michael Cheika, Will Skelton


World Cup-winning coach Bob Dwyer wants the cap threshold for overseas players reviewed to bolster the struggling Wallabies’ depth, impressed by the likes of a transformed Will Skelton.

He also believes the improved condition and form of some players overseas is an “indictment” on the Australian Super Rugby scene.

Less than a year out from the next World Cup, the Wallabies have dropped to sixth in the world rankings after a dismal 2018 campaign which gleaned four wins and nine losses.

While some have called for coach Michael Cheika to be replaced, Dwyer said the performances of coaches, players and administrators all needed to come under scrutiny.

He said it had been a bad year, but was convinced Australia weren’t that far off the mark and pointed out the Wallabies had been hit by injuries to key players throughout the year.
