Stan has released a sneak peek of their upcoming binge-worthy product which includes behind-the-scenes interviews with then-coach Eddie Jones and playmaker Carter Gordon.

With Stan having incredible access to players and staff away from the watchful eyes of supporters, Wallabies fans will see a new side to their team during a trying year under coach Jones.

The trailer for The Wallabies: Inside Rugby World Cup 2023 starts with Jones talking about the “mission” the coaching staff and players have to “change Australian rugby.”

“Every other rugby player in Australia wishes they were sitting where you are,” Jones also says in the sneak peek trailer.

“Fantastic opportunity, hey?

“Everything we do from now on becomes history.”

But as we now know, the 2023 campaign will go down in history for all the wrong reasons. With Australia winning just two of nine Tests, it was an overwhelming failure.

Losses to South Africa, Argentina and New Zealand saw the men in gold collect the wooden spoon in a shortened Rugby Championship, and more tough results followed.

Australia only managed to beat Georgia and Portugal at the World Cup. Historic defeats to Fiji and Wales saw the Wallabies knocked out before the quarter-finals.

“This was the end,” former Wallaby Peter FitzSimons said. “How did it get to this?”

The two-minute trailer also features Eddie Jones’ infamous “uppercut” press conference at Sydney Airport before flying out to Europe for the Rugby World Cup.
