Eddie Jones has been sacked as English rugby’s head coach with immediate effect.
The Australian was summoned to a meeting at Twickenham on Tuesday morning and informed his seven-year tenure in charge of the national team had been terminated after a disappointing series of results this year.
It is a big call by the Rugby Football Union just nine months before the start of next year’s Rugby World Cup in France.
Leicester’s Steve Borthwick remains the leading candidate to replace the 62-year-old Jones but, for now, the forwards coach Richard Cockerill has been put in day-to-day charge in a caretaker role.
