REVEALED: 5 serious contenders to replace under fire Eddie Jones

Eddie Jones has come under serious criticism in recent weeks, with his 2017 World Rugby Coach of the Year award becoming a distant memory as England have struggled to reach the heights of his early years in charge.

Here are five possible replacements should England opt to replace the Australian.

Pat Lam

Lam’s impact on Bristol Bears has been no mean feat despite their big money recruits.

His ability to forge a strong team of talents to work together has helped take the Bears from the Championship to the top of the Premiership.

The Auckland-born 52-year-old took the club up from the second tier in his first season at the club, and they have gone on to establish themselves at the top end of the top tier, even winning the 19/20 European Challenge Cup in October last year.

He has clearly handed the potential egos of what is something of a ‘galactico’ squad – could this translate into success with England if he took the role?
