BREAKING: Eddie Jones sacked tomorrow with replacement ready

England boss Eddie Jones will be SACKED tomorrow after the Aussie was summoned to showdown meeting with RFU chiefs today following dismal run.

Despite a plucky series victory in Australia, 2022 has been an underwhelming year for Jones and his team, with just five wins in 13 matches.

Tensions between Jones and the RFU hierarchy also appear to have been strained by the intervention of one of the head coach’s most trusted confidants – PR adviser David Pembroke, who criticised RFU chief executive Bill Sweeney in two now-deleted online posts earlier this week.

Eddie Jones sacked:

It will take until tomorrow for the RFU once the union board formally ratify review panel verdict that ‘his position has become untenable.’

According to the Mail Online, a statement will be made tomorrow morning with Leicester Tigers head coach Steve Borthwick set to take over with immediate effect.

They’ve also suggested that Tigers Defence coach Kevin Sinfield and head of physical performance Aled Walters are set to join the national set-up.

Sources suggest the Aussie will receive between £700,000 and £800,000 pay-out. To land Borthwick would require a payout in the region of £200,000 to get Tigers to release him from his current contract.

Highly rated Crusaders coach Scott Robertson has also spoken to the RFU and is keen to secure an international role.
