“A clown” – Fans ask ‘big question’ of England boss Steve Borthwick after baffling decision

3. Andy Farrell – 10/1

Despite having signed a contract extension until 2025, Andy Farrell would likely be at the top of the list for the RFU if they were to make another coaching change, regardless of how well Ireland performs during the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

Currently, one of the coaches England would be most interested in having is Farrell, who is achieving impressive results and playing styles across the Irish Sea.

However, whether or not Farrell would want to return to the RFU, where he was previously the defence coach between 2011 and 2015 under Stuart Lancaster – who is currently working in Ireland with Leinster – and left under a cloud after England’s disappointing 2015 home World Cup, is another matter altogether.
