“He is very inward looking” – Eddie Jones explains why Maro Itoje WON’T be England captain anytime soon

#2. Marcus Smith

Jones wrote: “”I have long felt that all the talk around him has not been helpful – either to England or Marcus himself. Why was he so popular when he first came on the scene with Harlequins?

“He was a good-looking boy who had been to a big public school where rugby success was part of the culture. He had a Filipino background, so he also offered something a little bit different. There was a lot to like about him.”
