  • England head coach Eddie Jones signs two-year contract extension

Eddie Jones has emphasised the 35-man squad is just for their first match of the 2018 championship on February 4, rather than the whole Six Nations but it does give an indication of his thoughts as they seek to win their third title on the bounce.

Jones was due to step down after the World Cup, but, having overseen a remarkable run of 22 wins from 23 Tests, his bosses have made a decision to lengthen his reign while inserting into the terms of the deal a performance break clause after Japan 2019.

He told the Times that the Lions role is "not a job you apply for".

Eddie Jones has claimed England's injury-hit squad will "hunt down" their Six Nations rivals after claiming the two-times defending champions have been written off before the start of the tournament.

"We have been clear about that", Brown said. "Potentially he can play full-back and if I can find out that he can play 13, he becomes a great squad player for us", said Jones.

"If we're planning for success, we've come out of very successful World Cup and Eddie is the right coach for the Lions then our arrangement isn't going to preclude that".

"I was never arrogant or presumptuous enough to think I would be offered anything beyond 2019", Jones said.


"It is not really part of my rugby history", he added. "I would see that as being consequential of coaching well". It's pretty simple. He must get paid for running sideways. does he?

Upon replacing Stuart Lancaster, Jones outlined his plan to retire to Barbados after the 2019 World Cup, but the prospect of establishing a dynasty shaped on the successful New Zealand model of a triumvirate of big hitters forced a change of heart.

Jones has done this previously with a number of players and it is showing no signs of slowing down, especially after he signed an extension to continue coaching England until 2021.

If as planned he works above his successor for a year, Jones insists he "will have the ultimate say, it can't be more black or white than that", and has ruled out extending his stewardship any further. The leading candidates with worldwide experience would include Andy Farrell, the Ireland defence coach, Warren Gatland, Joe Schmidt and Montpellier head coach Vern Cotter. "That's my role", Jones said.

"Because of that, they're in pain the whole time as that's hard work to do so the test is the mental part of it and whether they can keep doing that". We've got 13 players out, we've got no hope. "We agreed with Eddie what's the best thing for English rugby, we worked out what that option was and put it in place".

Included in the detail of the agreement is a break clause after the global showpiece in Japan, allowing the Rugby Football Union to sever ties with the Australian in the result of a poor performance.

Jones stressed he did now plan to bow out in 2021 and was unlikely to be tempted to stay at Twickenham any longer.
