Wales went into last autumn’s clash the tourists with high expectations but were soundly beaten 33-12 – causing Warren Gatland to abandon their expansive style in favour of a more conservative approach.
But with a change in how the game’s laws are being enforced seeing most international sides returning to their natural attacking instincts, Jones admits avoiding errors will be the key to keeping Australia at bay.
“First of all, we have to put Australia to one side and look at what we are good at,” said Jones.
“We’ve got to make sure that we are efficient and accurate. We praise them and rightly so but we’ve got faith in our ability.
“We cannot be sloppy and turn ball over easily or be inefficient in our set-phase attack. Those are the areas where you get your game going.
“You’ve got to put all your region’s style of play to the back of your head and think how do the coaches want us to play, what is the most efficient way we can play and how can we beat Australia?
“We want to be sharp and play with rhythm when we’ve got the ball but defensively we’ve got to be switched, otherwise they’ll make us pay.
“If you look at their back three and how efficient and potent they’ve been since the new laws have come in they’ve been very good, so we’ve got to be smart.”
