Eddie Jones claims the media are trying to get him sacked

England head coach Eddie Jones claimed that the media are trying to get him sacked following the win over the Springboks at Twickenham.

When questioned whether the win over the Boks was the most important of his tenure as England head coach given the 18 players that he was unable to select, the former Wallabies head coach launched into a response about the media wanting to have him sacked.

“The most important thing is what we do next,” he answered. “I don’t understand this guys. We’re a bloody good team. We lost a few games but we played tough today and we won."

“Why is it always the most important game? Because you want to sack me? You’re going to do it at some stage. You know that. You know that. If I stay long enough, you’re going to get me sacked. One day you’ll be happy. You’ll come in and say ‘Fantastic, we’ve got another bloke we can terrorise”’. 

“It was a good Test match. We’re happy, they’re not so happy.”

Jones' also spoke about the eagerly anticipated clash with the All Blacks next week. 

“We’ve got New Zealand next week, can’t wait mate,” Jones added. “They’re all sitting in the Lensbury [Hotel] probably drinking cups of tea, maybe having some scones, saying ‘oh we’ll take these guys’.

“They’ll be confident and we can’t wait to get them.”
