Eddie Jones delved into his mind game manual to pressure Australia by highlighting their ‘inferiority complex’ when it comes to facing England.

The head coach appointed a team that featured a surprisingly revamped rear line, with Manu Tuilagi on the wing and a 10-12 axle from Marcus Smith and Owen Farrell, and, in time-honored tradition, pitted against his compatriots.

The tone was respectful and humorous, but there was no mistaking the ominous intention when Jones said: “We are ready to take on a very good Australian team and chase them down the street.”

Wallabies head coach Dave Rennie was forced to name a patched side with loose-headed prop James Slipper on the header, having had to deal with the absence of star running backs Quade Cooper, Marika Koroibete and Samu Kerevi. .

So England’s optimism is well founded and Jones tried to turn the screw ahead of Saturday’s Twickenham clash by emphasizing the very high stakes they face.

England are looking for a record eighth straight win over their former rivals and Jones said: ‘The Australians have a bit of an inferiority complex against the English and I get it. The country began by sending convicts. We have always looked at England as the mother country.

“ I remember when I was a kid, we would hang around listening to the anthem and it was God Save The Queen. We were the smallest country in England, so when we played against them in sport it was an opportunity to show that we were not the smallest country.

“As an Australian, and the English probably have a hard time understanding it, I know how important this match is for Australia. It doesn’t matter if it’s the Olympics, test cricket, rugby league. This is the game that defines your season.

“As much as they would have liked to win the game at Murrayfield, this is the game they have aimed for. We understand how important it is to them. Just because the game has turned pro, don’t assume those long-term rivalries have lost importance. ‘

Despite the setback of losing to Scotland last Sunday, the Wallabies have been in recovery mode this season, twice defeating world champions South Africa during the Rugby Championship. So Jones went out of his way to emphasize that they will not be taken lightly.

“The Australian team has had a great run recently, won five events in a row and played really good rugby with Dave Rennie,” he said. “Several staff members who have worked with me are on your staff, so they will be very well prepared. This is the game they want. ‘

As Sportsmail predicted, Smith and captain Farrell will form a new creative hub on England’s backline, after Jones failed to pick them together for the fall opener against Tonga. You can see a rapidly developing chemistry between the pair, and he even mentioned them at the same time as two stellar combinations from the past, Aaron Mauger and Dan Carter from New Zealand and Rod Kafer and Steve Larkham from Australia.

Jones said: ‘They are constantly talking and thinking about the game. We think they are going to be a very good combination, not only for this game but in the future. ‘

Naming Tuilagi on the wing was a huge shock, as Sale’s center only appeared open against New Zealand in 2014. It was an experiment that has never been repeated – until now.

Jones claimed to have seen enough of the 30-year-old on the wing to convince him that the ploy could work. And he made it clear that Tuilagi would have a fluid role.

“The players will mix and match to their strengths and we believe this is the best baseline to play against Australia,” he said.

“I’ve seen Manu play on the wing and he can handle 12, 13, 11, 14, but probably not 15. He can handle all those positions with poise and is in the best condition of his career. I’ve never seen his highest desire and his ability to play center or wing is an added bonus for us. ‘
