Eddie Jones the ‘wrong man for the job’ according to Lions legend

Owen Farrell should be dropped is the advice that former British and Irish Lion Andy Powell is giving to Eddie Jones ahead of England’s clash with Wales.

“Looking at the players Eddie Jones is leaving out the England squad Sam Simmons, Dombrandt, Marcus Smith and Brown going forward I think Eddie Jones is the wrong man for the job!” wrote Powell.

He added: “I don’t think Farrell should be involved, Smith should be starting at 10 and playing around him.”

Wales v England, which will be played at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday [27 February, 4.45pm KO], is live on BBC One and BBC Radio 5 Live.

England will then face France at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 13 March (4.45pm KO) before travelling to Dublin to play Ireland on Saturday 20 March (4.45pm KO).
