Wallabies coach Michael Cheika has urged his team to play with more freedom, saying he’s far from satisfied with Saturday’s drought-breaking win over South Africa.
The Wallabies ended their six-match losing run with the 23-17 triumph in Brisbane, and they’ll be aiming to make it two Rugby Championship victories on the trot when they take on Argentina in Perth on Saturday night.
Cheika says his team are still a fair margin away from reaching their peak, and he’ll be looking for more improvement against Argentina.
“We still think there’s a lot of improvement to be made in the team. It’s something for us to build on,” Cheika said in Perth on Monday.
“Yes, it was good to win, and a good feeling. But I’m keen for us to play better.
“Considering the context of the game and where we were, there was always going to be a bit of anxiety around, ‘We’re in front, let’s hold on’, as opposed to playing a bit freer.
“I want us to free ourselves up and play a bit more footy.”
