Eddie Jones’ surprise response when asked if he wants to coach the Lions

Eddie Jones has ruled himself out of the running for the Lions job in 2021, dismissing the role as that of a blazer-wearing “ambassador”.

The former Wallabies and Japan chief told the Brisbane Courier Mail that he has no intention of leading the Lions to South Africa.

“The last thing I want to do is spend eight weeks in a blazer,” Jones said.

“That’s an ambassador job. I’m a coach. I’d rather coach the Queensland Sheffield Shield (cricket) team.”

The Aussie, however, would not dismiss the possibility that he could succeed Michael Cheika in charge of his native Australia in future.
