Eddie Jones: ‘England have ongoing leadership issue’

Eddie Jones has admitted that England has an “ongoing leadership issue” following their Six Nations defeat by Scotland at Murrayfield last weekend.

England suffered just their second loss in 25 Test matches, going down 25-13 to an inspired Scottish outfit.

The 2003 World Cup winners struggled to deal with their opponents’ tactics during the first half, especially at the breakdown where the hosts were overwhelmingly dominant.

“We’ve always known that we have to improve in our leadership,” Jones told BBC Sport. “That’s an ongoing issue for us, and something that takes time and is not solved overnight.

“It takes development, intellectual input, consultation, discussion, and we are doing all those things and moving in the right direction.
