Jim Mallinder responds to speculation he could be next England boss

Jim Mallinder has distanced himself from the England head coach role after speculation that he could be in the running to succeed. Eddie Jones.

The former Northampton boss, who is currently employed as a pathway coach by the RFU, will take charge of an inexperienced England team against a star-studded Barbarians side at Twickenham on Sunday.

This has led to speculation he could replace Jones, but when asked if he would be interested, Mallinder said: “Not at all. I have done that director of rugby role. It is my job to come in here, look after the best up-and-coming players.

“I have known for a while that I would be privileged enough to take this team and that’s what I’m doing.”
