Eddie onesons' emotions did not extend to sympathy for Wallabis as his England team continued their eventual domination over their homeland in the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals.
The 40-16 lesson in clinical rugby in Oita on Saturday made seven wins for Jones over unfortunate colleague Michael Sheika after Wallabis stunned England in the 2015 tournament.
The result is everything, but it is certain that it will end Sheika's time. Onesons offered his former team-mate Randwick an olive branch ahead of the knockout match, describing Sheika as a "golden old buddy" and proud of what he did with Volabis despite their struggles in the last four years.

However, there was some warmth when asked if he felt about Wallabis after condemning them on an early trip home.
"At the moment not much sympathy, not because I enjoy the victory and I think I am allowed to enjoy the victory, but maybe later in the week I will have," Ons said.
"It was a good performance, but we still don't feel we're in the best. We're probably going to have to get better next week, so we look forward to using it. “

Ons said victory was built on stubborn defenses, something he stressed would be needed when he surprisingly dropped five-eighth George Ford from start XV.
Limiting Volabis to just one penalty goal when they dominated the opening exchange laid the groundwork for victory, onesons said. "We knew if they went there, they were a team of advantage. We hung up and restored the momentum and made good use of the opportunities. "

Onesons referred to the "do-or-die" history of the Japanese samurai warriors in the lead and was back on it full time, saying they would take the same attitude in the semifinals.
"The best samurai were always guys who had a plan but could adapt, had a calm head but were full of aggression and I think we were like that today.
"The challenge is how to improve because there is always a better samurai around the corner."
