    Eddie Jones quits England to lead Australia

    Following England’s disappointing 2018 Six Nations campaign, Eddie Jones has handed in his resignation and has taken up a new role with the Wallabies.

    Jones has been named as the Wallabies new Director of Rugby. The new role means he will head up Australia’s preparations for the 2019 Rugby World Cup and will effectively be current Wallabies coach Michael Cheika’s boss.

    Cheika welcomed the news of Jones appointment saying: “I can’t wait to work with Eddie, he is a fantastic coach and has a lot to say on what I’m doing wrong with the national side, so things won’t change that much. He will probably just call me at 4 in the morning now.”

    Eddie Jones thanked the English public and England Rugby saying: “I would like to thank the English public, media and the board for all the support they gave me during my time with the national side.

    He went onto explain his decision to leave: “I would have loved to have taken England to Japan but I wanted to take a team to the World Cup that I thought I can actually win it with.”

    “Australia have a strong pool of players and I think Michael and I can make them World Champions.”

    “I knew when we lost to Ireland that my time was up and I contacted Raelene Castle who welcomed me with open arms and we decided that today would be the perfect day to make this announcement”

    Sorry mate they arent. Their bosses might be.

    But the players are just a bunch of 20 somethings (sprinkled in with a few 30 somethings) who are the best players in this country in their positions. Oh, and then there is Beale, Foley and Folau who get selected in their positions because they are from NSW and RA pay them a lot of money.

    Best players in the country is arguable at best.

    They have also signed on as represetives of the organisation that is actively destroying rugby through malicious and ineptitude. They could be likened to scabs working during a union campaign that will benefit all workers, taking their contract money and advancing their career at the cost of everyone else. But I acknowledge that opinion is pretty glass half empty.

    I appreciate the acknowledgement.

    Still yet to see evidence of how any of these representatives had an active involvement in the decision of the axing of the Western Force.

    We could continue to hash out this difference of opinion, boring everybody here, or we could fast forward about 20 Posts and agree to disagree... I'm voting for the latter.
