“I would love to coach Ellis Genge” – RFU’s ‘three man’ shortlist to replace England boss Eddie Jones

Eddie Jones has confirmed next year’s 2023 Rugby World Cup will be his last in charge of England, with the RFU already working on identifying his successor. 

Jones’ contract expires after the tournament in France and the Australian has entered what he has described as a “last chapter” in the hot seat at Twickenham.
