Sir Clive Woodward calls Eddie Jones ‘pathetic’ in latest stunning rant

Sir Clive Woodward has once again ripped into England head coach Eddie Jones, even blaming him for Charlie Ewels red card after just. 82 seconds against Ireland.

The World Cup-winning coach went in on the Aussie for his  “pathetic macho stuff” in the build-up to the 32-15 loss at Twickenham

“They were found wanting and that is the only way to look at this match. There is no Monday morning meeting and England are on the plane home, with Jones once again blaming a referee for his own shortcomings,” wrote Woodward.

“Why? Firstly we had all this pathetic macho stuff from Jones in the build-up about how England were going to play with a physicality and aggression that Ireland hadn’t seen before. 

“Why even go there? Of course it’s going to be tough and torrid up front, it’s England against Ireland at Twickenham for heaven’s sake. It’s a given.

“It’s that kind of ridiculous rhetoric that probably contributed to Ewels’ dangerous challenge, which was rightly punished with a red card.”

SHORTLIST TO REPLACE EDDIE JONES:

Check out who is reportedly in the running currently below.

#1. Andy Farrell

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. Infamously dumped along side Mike Catt and Stuart Lancaster following England’s disastrous 2015 World Cup campaign, he would certainly have a point to prove.
