Eddie Jones tells Six Nations organisers to consider relegation

Eddie Jones has called for Six Nations organisers to consider introducing relegation after Italy suffered a 21st successive Championship defeat on Saturday

“I think they should always consider rewarding merit, it doesn’t matter what competition you’re in,” Jones told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Sportsweek programme.

“The organisers talk about the Six Nations being the best rugby competition in the world and it probably is close to it, but to improve it you’ve got to find a way of making sure you’ve got the six best teams in Europe always playing in it.

“If that involves relegation then it’s something that should be looked at very closely.”
