“Seething” – Ford and four other players blacklisted by Eddie Jones, and the reason why

Below, we look at how in-form fly-half George Ford and four other players who fell foul of England head coach Eddie Jones.

#1. George Ford

The 28-year-old finds himself trapped in a parallel sporting universe where form is irrelevant. He has been the best No 10 in the country for months – even out-performing the boy wonder, Marcus Smith – but he remains out in the cold. 

Reports suggest that Ford didn’t react well to being dropped in the Autumn with the England boss as a result cutting all ties with the Tigers playmaker despite his stellar performances of late.

He’s likely won his last cap under the Aussie.
