World Cup 2023 – Pierre-Henri Broncan, Brad Davis, Dan Palmer … Australia’s well-known staff


Coach Eddie Jones and Australian Football Federation have finalized the Wallabies squad for the upcoming World Cup. We find there the Frenchman Pierre-Henri Broncan, without a job since his dismissal from Castres last February.

According to our information, Federation of Australia has finished composing the Wallabies squad for the upcoming World Cup. Brad Davis will be the technician in charge of three quarters; While former right back Dan Palmer will take over the sidelines. And behind coach Eddie Jones, who has been in charge of Australia’s selection since the start of the calendar year, the two men will join a crew made up of Frenchman Pierre-Henri Broncan, Englishman Neil Hatley and Australian Brett Hodgson.

As a reminder, Pierre-Henri Broncan will be responsible for managing the hitting and forward games sector. Neil Hatley, an Englishman who has notably worked with London Irish and Bath, will take care of the task and co-ordination. Like Broncan, who has never hidden the friendship he has with Jones, Hateley is an ‘old’ acquaintance of the coach since he actually managed the England national team when she was coached by the Australian technician during the 2019 World Cup. He also knows the ‘PHB’ well, he has managed his duties official with him for a season when the two men were at Bath.

The 34-year-old former Wallaby Palmer in charge

The key sector will belong to Australian Dan Palmer. At the age of 34, the former Wallaby international (select group) who had to put his career on hiatus after suffering a serious foot injury while training while playing in Grenoble, the youngest member of this squad is undoubtedly the least experienced, even if he has been coaching a team. Brumbies scrum since 2015. Finally, and since February 2023, the Australians’ defense is in charge of Brett Hodgson, a former professional rugby league player. Eddie Jones had a long term project working with this former NRL (National Rugby League) insider. He was due to bring him into English selection before he was sacked last December.
