Sky Sports pundit Phil Clarke has suggested England RU boss Eddie Jones should join the England RL setup as an assistant.
Current England Coach Wayne Bennett’s contract has expired after the Great Britain tour, and it’s unclear at this stage if he will be offered a new deal.
The pundit, who also played for Wigan Warriors in the past, suggests Canberra Raiders Head Coach Ricky Stuart should take charge, and Jones should be his assistant.
“Here’s a name I’m gonna throw at you: Ricky Stuart supported by Eddie Jones,” Clarke said on Sky Sports Racing’s Big Sports Breakfast.
“Ricky Stuart loves the Brits, we all know that, that’s a fact. He would love a chance to get involved at the end of the season with the international game.
“There is no better supporter of rugby league in the north of England from down under than Ricky Stuart. And I also know that Eddie Jones loves his rugby league so he might come on board as an assistant.”
