Jones can blow!

Challenged after average results, England coach Eddie Jones saw Bill Sweeney come to his defense and maintain his confidence ahead of the 2023 World Cup.

Barring an earthquake by then, Eddie Jones will see France in the fall of 2023. Indeed, while England remain two very average performances during the last two editions of the 6 Nations Tournament (5th in 2021 and 3rd in 2022, with three defeats each time), the future of the XV de la Rose coach looked uncertain, just over a shy away from the 2023 World Cup in France. However, thanks to two successes (25-17 in Brisbane and 21-17 in Sydney) in July against the Wallabies, against a single small defeat (30-28 in Perth), the former hooker has undoubtedly saved his place and comes out finally stronger from this Australian tour. Indeed, at a press conference at Twickenham on Thursday, RFU chief executive Bill Sweeney maintained his faith in his coach. ” Eddie (Jones) is the man who will take us to the 2023 World Cup. (…) The challenge for us is to improve at the pace that we think is good enough to be fully competitive in France, ”explained the latter in particular.

Sweeney praises Jones’ good ratio

“Winning in Australia is never easy… So it was really nice to go there, to come away with two wins in this series of test matches, both designed by Eddie. (…) One of the reasons we feel very confident in the decisions and conversations about Eddie is his win ratio, especially against Southern Hemisphere nations. It’s now 25 games against Tier 1 teams in the southern hemisphere for 20 wins, so it’s an 80% win rate, Sweeney later clarified, in remarks picked up by Sky Sports. (…) We are convinced that Eddie is the man for the job. From now on, the English will try to confirm in November their last good outings against Argentina (6th), Japan (12th), but especially against New Zealand (19th) and South Africa (26th). ).
