ATTITUDE COUNTS FOR WALLABIES
SYDNEY — Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie said yesterday that the attitude of players as much as form will help him decide the makeup of his team as he plots a course towards next year’s World Cup.
McKenzie said the desire to wear the gold jersey and professionalism would be major factors in weighing up contenders ahead of June’s threeTest home series against France.
The coach said he was pleased with the competition for positions and form of Australia’s franchises in this season’s Super Rugby, but he added that consistency was key for players on and off the field.
“The attitudinal side — the right mindset and right behaviours — are a really important part of the make up for me,” McKenzie told the Australian Associated Press.
“I’m actually looking for consistency, and the technical execution and behaviour and all those things are in the pot.” — SapaAFP.
