Jones set to become England coach

EDDIE Jones is reportedly in talks with England’s Rugby Football Union about becoming the national team’s next head coach, and the first from overseas.

Sections of the British media reported that the 55-year-old Australian was close to being appointed, with the London Evening Standard saying he has flown to the English capital yesterday. The RFU said it wouldn’t be commenting on speculation regarding Jones, who coached Australia to the Rugby World Cup final in 2003, and led Japan to three pool wins at the recent tournament in Britain — including a stunning 34-32 victory over South Africa.
