Mike Tindall makes his thoughts on Eddie Jones sacking clear

 Mike Tindall believes the Rugby Football Union’s decision to sack head coach Eddie Jones was the wrong one.

“It’s a really difficult one because Eddie does divide opinion,” Tindall told ITV.

“I would say I don’t agree with their decision to part ways, [but] I understand why they’ve done it.

“I still think he’s still delivered an 18-game winning streak and he’s produced probably the best England performance that’s ever been seen against New Zealand in 2019,” he added.

“But if you look from 2019 to where we are now, the results aren’t quite as good, so it really is a difficult one, but I would’ve stuck with him and then changed after the World Cup. 

“I think it’s hard now. Say a new coach comes in now and does fantastically well through the Six Nations and then the World Cup, everyone will say it has Eddie’s DNA on it, sort of like what he got off [predecessor] Stuart Lancaster when he came in too, and then if you do poor it’s the new guy’s fault.”
