Michael Cheika's emotional reaction as the Wallabies bow out of the World Cup

The Wallabies have been knocked out of the 2019 Rugby World Cup after suffering a 24-point defeat at the hands of Eddie Jones’ England side.

Michael Cheika’s men put in an admirable effort but couldn’t make the most of their opportunities and England pounced on their repeated errors throughout the quarter-final clash.

Speaking after the game, which could be his last in charge of the Australian side, an emotional Cheika conveyed his disappointment at the result, but also his pride at his players’ effort.

“I was supposed to get this done for the people here, for the Australians… I’m f—ing so disappointed,” Cheika said.

“They gave it everything. They put their bodies on the line.”

Cheika previously led the Wallabies to a surprise final appearance in the 2015 World Cup.
