ENGLAND COACH, EDDIE JONES, AND CAPTAIN, OWEN FARRELL, ENTERING NEWS CONFERENCE 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND COACH, EDDIE JONES, SAYING: "Look, it's tough when you lose a game and particularly at this level of the World Cup.

At this moment, not a lot of sympathy, no, because I'm enjoying the win.

I think I'm allowed to enjoy the win.

Maybe later in the week, I might.

So ask me that later in the week." 3.

JONES LISTENING TO JONES' PREVIOUS COMMENTS ABOUT PLAYERS' "SAMURAI SPIRIT" 4.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND COACH, EDDIE JONES, SAYING: "It's do or die game today.

Everyone understands that.

And, you know, the best samurai were always the guys who had a plan, but they could adapt, they had a calm head but they are full of aggression.

And I thought we were pretty much like that today.

But again, the challenge is how we get better, because there's always a better samurai around the corner.

And so we're going to continue to get better." 5.

AUSTRALIA COACH, MICHAEL CHEIKA, AND CAPTAIN, MICHAEL HOOPER, ENTERING NEWS CONFERENCE 8.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) AUSTRALIA COACH, MICHAEL CHEIKA, SAYING: "I'm feeling very disappointed, obviously.

I imagine all Australians would be.

We really went into the game looking to play our style of footy, which we did a lot of, just not clinical enough to finish off opportunities and they defended very well.

So, you know, sometimes you just got to suck that up and wear it.

That's life, you know." 9.

CHEIKA LISTENING TO JOURNALIST ASKING IF HE IS NOW CONSIDERING HIS ROLE AS AUSTRALIA COACH 10.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) AUSTRALIA COACH, MICHAEL CHEIKA, SAYING: "Mate, I'll be honest.

It's a cruel, cruel world nowadays when you're asking those questions two minutes after the World Cup - we've been knocked out of World Cup.

And if you'd find it inside you to find a little bit of compassion for people who are hurting, just ask the more relevant questions, because I'll tell you for me that I came here with only one thought in my mind about winning here and that thought's just disappeared now.

Not 15, 20 minutes ago.

And I know that that's what the papers demand, but perhaps whatever your news outlet is, or whatever, should think about people's feelings for a minute.

Just chill, yeah?" 11.

CHEIKA AND HOOPER LEAVING NEWS CONFERENCE STORY: England coach Eddie Jones said he didn't have much sympathy for his native Australia on Saturday (October 19) after his side's 40-16 victory in the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals.

"I think I'm allowed to enjoy the win.

Maybe later in the week, I might," Jones said after being asked if he felt for his homeland, who he coached between 2001-2005.

The result puts current Australia coach Michael Cheika under pressure after five years at the helm.

Cheika criticised a reporter for asking him whether he was considering his position immediately after the match, saying reporters should "think about people's feelings" before asking such questions.

"If you'd find it inside you to find a little bit of compassion for people who are hurting, just ask the more relevant questions," Cheika said.
