“Held talks” – Eddie Jones set to take over European giant following 2023 World Cup

England head coach Eddie Jones is reportedly deep in discussions with European giants Racing 92 about taking over as head coach following the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

Midi Olypmpique have revealed Jones has already held discussions with Racing 92 over taking the job once he departs England.

Some fans reaction suggest they'd like the Aussie to leave his current role early with one supporter saying: "Take him now if they want - he’s a busted flush as far as England is concerned."

RFU boss Bill Sweeney has already revealed the next boss will be English with contenders such as Warren Gatland and Scott Robertson likely ruled out.

“We believe we’ve got such a wealth of English coaches in the game. As a leading rugby nation we should be developing English coaches and an English style of play,” said Sweeney.

“That should be long-term and therefore the preference would be to have an English setup as far as I’m concerned.

“We’ve got a war room that’s got every English coach you can imagine – based here and based internationally. We’ve got an advanced succession plan in place

DID YOU KNOW? Jones made three appearances for Leicester during the 1991/92 season in England

#5. Andy Farrell - 25/1

The irony with Farrell is that he is arguably the most obvious candidate and fits the role as well as anyone, but he might be the toughest for the RFU to land due to his long-term deal with Ireland.
