Eddie Jones Responds To Calls To Resign During Radio Interview

England head coach Eddie Jones has revealed “he knew” there would be scrutiny when he became England coach.

“I took on the job of England and I knew this was going to be the case,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live following some calls for him to step down.

“I don’t think it helps being an Australian but that’s part of the deal. When I decided to do another [World Cup] cycle, I knew that would be more intense.

“The longer you’re in the job, the more people probably don’t want you to be in the job. It’s all part of the job that we have.”

The four changes Eddie Jones should make to his XV for France

#1. Charlie Ewels

Telegraph: “Regardless of public opinion and how his sending off affected the spectacle, modern players know that they must tackle lower. Unforgivably clumsy.”

Rugby Pass: “Received the earliest red card in international rugby history after only 82 seconds for his dangerous tackle on James Ryan who was left concussed. Ewels failed to bend into the tackle and as a result made forceful and direct contact with his opposite number’s head.”

Replacement: Joe Launchbury
