The breakdown threat will originate from a different source on Saturday, however, with fetchers supreme David Pocock and Michael Hooper present in the Wallabies back row.
“They are exceptionally talented”, said former utility back Catt.
Dywer, who coached Australia to victory over England in the 1991 World Cup final, added more fire to crucial Pool A World Cup clash on Sunday by claiming England’s reputation has a fearsome scrummaging team is based on illegal tactics.
The same mistake can not be made against the Wallabies who substitute a less effective scrum than England for a far superior arsenal of attacking weapons in the backline.
“I think they really broke the mould in that regard”.
At 6ft foot – and even that at a stretch – Pocock is not afraid to admit he cuts a relatively diminutive figure in a Test arena overrun by giants.
Former Wallabies flankers Waugh and Smith assumed Back’s mantle after the Leicester grafter retired, but, while Australia flourished in that area, England have lacked an edge at the breakdown ever since.
It would be a disastrous end to the World Cup for the hosts. “If I was England, I would be saying if we support our ball carrier accurately then there will not be any chance of them pilfering the ball”.
When asked if style is secondary to the outcome on Saturday, Morgan replied: “Yes, absolutely, it’s a World Cup“.
With the stakes so high – England were upset 28-25 by Wales and will go out in shame in the qualifying round if they lose again – there is a war of words over how the Pool A confrontation will be refereed at Twickenham.
Pocock and Hooper will start in tandem for just the third time in Wallabies colours, but already both feel comfortable with their highly-effective double act.
“We saw that Fiji are a solid, very strong team who play with a lot of speed”, said Giteau.The suspension takes effect immediately and includes the player’s remaining matches at the Rugby World Cup and thereafter converts to weeks with his English club, Gloucester. “We’ve got to perform, execute and make good decisions”.
England believe they can boss Australia around in the pack this weekend.
“So it’s a case of going out there and not leaving anything on the pitch”.
“We’re sick of training each other, we’ve been doing that for months now”.
Essentially, the likes of captain Chris Robshaw and Launchbury will look to target Pocock at the first ruck, but where it gets complicated is when you get into phases after that when he is roaming in open play looking for opportunities to get on the ball. “It’s great that we’re here now and we’re able to work together and it’s still a great thing”.
England’s front-row has come in for criticism this week with ex-Wallabies coach Bob Dwyer questioning Joe Marler’s technique in their defeat against Wales.
“Do I have to answer to him as well?” said Cheika. We want to enjoy our time playing the game.
“Talking about the opponent or a few flaw in the opponent from our point of view is disrespectful, and it leads to an excuse environment”.
