Eddie Jones gives his view on relegation and promotion in the Six Nations
England head coach Eddie Jones has given his opinion on the hot debate to whether promotion and relegation should be introduced to the Six Nations.
The Aussie, who’s led the men in white to back-to-back Six Nations titles, is keen for a second tier to be properly established in Europe.
“Georgia and Romania have enormous potential.” said Jones.
“They have good gene pools for rugby and Georgia, in particular, has the infrastructure to push forward,
“What they should ideally do is have a proper Six Nations B division and then have a play-off game against the bottom side from division A.
“Wouldn’t that be exciting? Imagine playing Georgia in front of 60,000 in Tblisi to keep your place.”
Italy have won just one of their last 20 matches in the championship, finishing bottom 12 time in their 18 campaigns.
