The Wallabies have blocked out all the “chaos” about calls over their style and have a burning desire to get their game right against a ruthless England team hellbent on capitalising on a “once in a lifetime opportunity”.
England head into Saturday’s final Test in Sydney at a sold out Allianz Stadium with the three-match series already secured following well executed wins in Brisbane and Melbourne.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to beat Australia 3-0,” said current England and former Wallabies coach Eddie Jones.
England scrum coach Neal Hatley reinforced the message that the 2016 grand slam champions, who have knocked Australia out of second spot in the world rankings, wouldn’t be satisfied with a 2-1 outcome.
“We want to be ruthless at every single opportunity we get,” Hatley said.
“To go home 3-0 just sounds a whole lot better than 2-1.”
The Wallabies are equally determined to salvage something from the series and avoid the ignominy of being swept 3-0 at home for the first time in 45 years.
“I think when you have a couple of losses there’s all the chaos out there saying you need to change everything,” Moore told AAP on Friday.
“We’ve kept tight to the way we want to play and the way we believe in. Just because you have a few losses you don’t throw all that out the window.
“We’ve worked hard on maintaining that this week and some little improvements on the way we want to play the game.
“There is a burning desire to get our game right.”
Coach Michael Cheika also views the Sydney Test as another opportunity to produce the crowd-pleasing running style which was only sighted sporadically through the first two games.
“This is our chance to give them the running football we’ve played in the previous matches, but with better quality and more consistency,” Cheika said.
The Wallabies are set to blood their fifth debutant of the series, with Western Force lock Adam Coleman named on the bench.
Hooker Moore expected his side would not get as distracted by the niggle that was so evident in last week’s tetchy Test.
“It’s always a fine line between overstepping that part of the game and maybe taking your focus off what you’re trying to do in the game so that’s something we did speak about during the week,” Moore said.
Vice-captain Michael Hooper was adamant the Wallabies could turn things around quickly.
“You can have that light bulb moment, that eureka sort of thing that just makes everything click,” flanker Hooper said.
After the fallout over the AAMI Park surface last week, both camps were happy with the Allianz Stadium pitch despite some rain on Friday.
