Rugby legends have called out for current England players to challenge some of Eddie Jones’ decisions – but that didn’t work out very well for these four.
However, the Aussie takes his man management very seriously, and is never afraid of dumping players who aren’t on the same page.
These five made the mistake of crossing the England boss, ending their international career in a instant.
#1. Danny Care
Former England start Kyran Bracken was the first person to reveal why the Quins playmaker was mysteriously frozen out of Jones plans in 2018 despite being a regular up until that point.
“He (Care) made the mistake of speaking his mind to Eddie Jones and questioning how he wanted him to play when he was playing with an England ‘B’ team against Japan in the autumn of 2018,” revealed the former England scrum-half.
“Eddie’s response to that was ‘that’s not the f***ing attitude I want’ and he binned him from his plans.”
This story was later backed up by England and Harlequins teammate Mike Brown in his column for the Mail Online with Care confirming he’s been blacklisted
DID YOU KNOW? At age 11 he was invited to join the Academy at Sheffield Wednesday Football Club which meant giving up club rugby union for a few years
