Wallabies seek consistency

Australia assistant coaches Richard Graham and Jim Williams have called for more consistency from the team in a bid to close out more results.

The Wallabies are preparing for their penultimate Tri-Nations match of the season, against South Africa in Bloemfontein, after a disappointing result over the weekend. Robbie Deans' side twice threw away a 14-point lead in Pretoria before succumbing 44-31.

"The thing with any performance is to be consistent over a period of time," said skills coach Graham. "It's a young group and the more times we are put in situations like we were at the weekend, then I think you'll see us consistently becoming better in those aspects."

Forwards coach Williams echoed the sentiments of Graham, saying: "I suppose it's not down to one thing, it's the ability to play well on the day.

"It's about getting consistency. We've worked hard on preparation this week to ensure we address problems from last weekend and are nice and positive for this Saturday."
