Next England Rugby Head Coach odds after Eddie Jones sacking

Next England Rugby Head Coach odds following Eddie Jones sacking, which leaves the team without a head coach nine months before the Rugby World Cup.

Despite a plucky series victory in Australia, 2022 has been an underwhelming year for the Aussie and his team, with just five wins in 13 matches.

During his time in charge Jones steered England to three Six Nations titles, including a Grand Slam in 2016, two series wins in Australia, an unbeaten run of 18 matches, an Autumn Nations Cup, and a Rugby World Cup final in Japan.

Forwards coach Richard Cockerill will now take over the running of the team on an interim basis.

Jones departs after a dismal year of results, with only five wins from 12 Tests in 2022.

With that in mind, RUCK takes a look at the five current favourites to land the role permanently according to Betfair.

  1. In 1994 Jones gave up his career as a teacher and school principal to coach his former club Randwick

  3. He played a minimal role with South Africa when the Springboks won the 2007 Rugby World Cup and from 2012 to 2015 he coached Japan, leading them in the 2015 Rugby World Cup and their upset win over South Africa

  5. In November 2015 Jones was appointed by Goldman Sachs Group Inc. to the bank’s advisory board in Japan
