Eddie Jones reveals the five candidates to captain England this summer

#3. Maro Itoje

Jones said: “I’m going to contradict myself – and contradiction’s a big part of life – but I’ve got no doubt in the future he will captain England. Whether that’s in my time or someone else’s time.

“He [Itoje] is really moving in the right direction and it was interesting the role that he played in the team during the autumn,” Jones continued. “He took on the role responsible for team communication.

“It is when the team get together to talk about things they need to talk to. And no one’s done a better job than he has done so I’m really pleased with the way he is moving.”
