If there was any doubt on how Wallabies players feel about the appointment of Eddie Jones, there is no longer.

Scrum half Nic White admitted he is 's**ting himself' over playing under new coach Eddie Jones, after Dave Rennie was sacked earlier this month following a poor 2022 which saw the side win just five of 14 Tests.

White was of course speaking with his tongue firmly in-cheek, but it certainly still gives insight into the mood of the Wallaby camp just months out from a World Cup.

Jones, who previously coached the Wallabies from 2001-2005, is known for his uncompromising, intense approach with both coaches and players, and White said the players were well aware of his reputation.

'Eddie Jones, (is) an amazing coach, a guy who a lot of us admire what he's done and are pretty excited,' he said on Channel 9's Australian Open coverage.

'Excited and I guess everyone is kind of quietly s***ting themselves about Eddie coming in.

'Mate, he's a world class coach so there is a bit of excitement there but he is also a whole lot of unknown for us players. It has been a ride.'
