‘P45 time” – Former England star sends brutal warning to Eddie Jones

Austin Healey believes England boss Eddie Jones’ job is on the line heading into the two final rounds of the Six Nations.

The former Leicester star, who has been embroiled in a war of words with the Aussie in recent weeks, has looked to ramp up the pressure one Jones.

“The ramifications for this game are enormous,” wrote Healey in his Column for The Telegraph.

“If England lose heavily at home to Ireland then they would have to go to Paris to take on France in the final round – the best French team we’ve seen in a generation, who are still in the hunt for a Grand Slam – and it would be very difficult to see how you talk your way out of those losses.

“It could be another successive fifth-place finish.

“Playing well and losing to Ireland and then losing to France might just about be enough.

“But if England are beaten convincingly – two scores or more – by the Irish and then lose in Paris, then it’s P45 time.”

#5. Andy Farrell – 22/1

The irony with Farrell is that he is arguably the most obvious candidate and fits the role as well as anyone, but he might be the toughest for the RFU to land due to his long-term deal with Ireland.
