Wallaby attack can be world's best: Foley

Bernard Foley is adamant the Wallabies' misfiring attack can overtake New Zealand and become the world's best once combinations are set and things clicks into place.

Australia wasted numerous chances in last weekend's defeat to Scotland but after an "open and honest" review session, five-eighth Foley says there is no cause for alarm about the team's attacking style, despite criticism they are too robotic and predictable.

Foley believes the problem is merely execution and cohesion, not approach or ability.

"I can honestly say that this Australian team can be the best attack in the world and we're going to keep pursuing that and tirelessly working on it to make sure it gets there," Foley said on Tuesday.

"It's just making sure we're all on the same page when we run out there.

"When we go out and execute exactly what we want to do, I don't think there's a defence that can stop the attacking abilities of the players in our team.

"That's what we're striving for and it's not going to gel in one week.

"We have to build it together, keep spending time as a combination and keep growing those connections and that's what we're aiming to do."

The Wallabies are expected to beat a weakened Italy on Saturday and a slick performance with the ball in hand could help alleviate mounting pressure on the team.
