The Wallabies are on a three-Test British tour and defeated
Wales 29-21 in Cardiff in their first match at the weekend.
“We really have pride in our bench and the impact they make
and I’ve got complete confidence in whoever gets subbed in or subbed out that
they add to the team,” Coleman told Reuters.
“It’s not about just being the same, they add that little
bit extra in the back end of games.”
The Wallabies have suffered four successive defeats to England
with the last time Australia winning in the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
Coleman insisted preparations for Saturday’s match would be no different from

”We had new systems in place and I think it just took a
little bit of time for the boys to really shore up and nail down that detail
within our defensive systems.
”I think the boys are down pat now and it’s really showing
in an 80-minute performance."
