“[I] gave it a run. Hopefully be the catalyst for change. Sometimes you have to eat shit for others to eat caviar further down the track,” Jones said.

Rugby Australia boss Hamish McLennan also spoke to FitzSimons in Paris, the morning after South Africa triumphed over the All Blacks to win a record fourth Rugby World Cup.

“Another world-class Australian coach heads back overseas,” McLennan said.

“Is it the coach or the system? Michael Cheika gets sacked in 2019 after a quarter-final loss and takes Argentina to the semis in 2023. The lunacy must end. The supply chain is broken. Centralisation is the answer.

“After losing to England, New Zealand, France, Ireland and Italy last year, it was a gamble worth taking but this proves the whole system needs to change. It’s up to the states now, the plan is there. The parochialism has to end. Let’s be remembered for making the tough calls and fixing it.”

Both parties have been locked in discussions over recent days about an exit for the under-fire Jones. There is final paperwork to be signed but his time as Wallabies boss is over.

The news is a major embarrassment for RA, who signed Jones on a five-year deal in January after sacking Dave Rennie following a run of inconsistent performances.

Jones failed to win a Test before the World Cup and presided over the worst Wallabies team in history at the game’s centrepiece event.
