Eddie Jones about to be potted

Post by tiger76 » Tue Dec 06, 2022 10:54 am

As it says he's about to sacked by the RFU. Steve Borthwick expected to take over.

Eddie Jones might have taken England to the WC final in 2019, but results since have been disappointing to say the least, especially given the resources at his disposal.

Yes a pity, after an excellent start Jones has declined and recent results are very poor. Appears to have no settled side and Farrell’s better days are now only a memory.

So apparently phonetic spelling is also not allowed. The nanny state, which I saw this morning in the news stating that as it’s cold you should dress warmly, is alive and kicking!



MOD: seven day ban now issued. The reason for this is that, following the deleting of a post where the phonetic spelling of a totally inappropriate word, was laid out, this poster, then chose to belittle the moderation, rather than just accept that it was use of inappropriate language in the first instance.

Excellent moderating btw.

Short and simple explanation of the decision taken and why.

Allows those with real interest to continue the discussion.

Ridiculous decision at this point in the cycle. The RFU will have to pay off Jones and compensate Tigers for Borthwick with money they don't have, and we'll still be no where near come September next year.

Why not? Every game at Twickenham brings in circa £13M. They had 4 over the Autumn, won one and the last one ended up in the team being booed off. The RFU know what matters.

I won't miss having to listen to him. I just hope that the new guy is equally as successful as he was in the last couple of years.
