Australia make bold approach for England coach

 Eddie Jones is facing a battle with new Australian head coach Dave Rennie to hold onto attack specialist Scott Wisemantel.

The 49-year-old, who has proved to be a key member of his England management team, was brought in by Jones in May 2018.

His contract ended after the tournament finished and the popular former Rugby League player returned to Australia to continue teaching.

According to RugbyPass, Rugby Football Union are unaware of any move for Wisemantel by the ARU.

Before the final, Wisemantel confirmed that a discussion with Jones would be his top priority.

However, Scott Johnson, the Australian Rugby Union director of rugby, has made it clear he wants to give Rennie a group of Aussie coaches to support his new regime, which is thought to include Wisemantel.
