England boss Eddie Jones set for crunch talks with the RFU

England boss Eddie Jones is set for crunch talks to discuss his future with Rugby Football Union chief executive Bill Sweeney in the coming weeks.

Jones is out of contract in the summer of 2021, but when asked if he will be in the post beyond that date he replied: “I don’t know.”

“We’ve got dinner organised in a couple of weeks so we may be able to chat about it,” Jones said.

“It must be his shout. I’ll take a Triple Crown to show him,” he added.

England signed off a Six Nations campaign truncated by the coronavirus-enforced postponement of their final match against Italy with a 33-30 victory over Wales at Twickenham that completed a first Triple Crown since 2016.
