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

Jones wrote: “I feel regret when I see individuals fail to utilise their own huge talent. Danny Cipriani is the obvious example for me. I remember seeing him as a 22-year-old. He was unbelievable.

“He was gifted, fast, inventive and endlessly creative. But he lost focus. When I worked later with him it was too late to get him back on track. In 2018 he had already turned 30. The pattern had been set and there was no changing him.”
