Eddie Jones ‘wouldn’t say no’ to Lions coaching role

England head coach Eddie Jones has revealed he’s “open to everything” when it comes to a potential coaching role on future British and Irish Lions tours.

The Aussie’s contract as England head coach runs until the 2019 World Cup, and he has already ruled out extending it beyond then.

“I am open to everything,” he said.


“I don’t sit there at night and think ‘I hope I am going to be the next Lions coach’.

“I wouldn’t say no but I am not saying yes.

“But the only thing I’m concerned about at the moment is coaching England, and I’m doing that until 2019.

“Then we’ll see where we go, whether I continue coaching or I go and watch cricket in Barbados. I’ve never said no to anything.

“People in Japan ask me if I will go back and coach Japan, and I never say no. So, I’m open to everything.”
