Clubs circling rugby union boss previously chased by Wigan Warriors as he is compared to some of the world’s finest

As expected, last week saw the end of Eddie Jones’ time with England rugby union.

“It is important to recognise the huge contribution Eddie has made to English rugby, winning three Six Nations Championships, one Grand Slam and taking us to a Rugby World Cup Final,” said RFU CEO, Bill Sweeney on Jones’ dismissal.

“He has the highest win ratio of any previous England head coach and has helped develop the leadership skills of many players and coaches. I am grateful to Eddie for all he has done for England across many areas of the game and the professional way in which he has approached reviewing the performance of the team. He has provided the panel with astute insight and meaningful lessons that will support the team performance going forward.”

It has been rumoured for a long time that he would like a crack in the 13-man game.

He has previously been chased by Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves in the past and has been open that coaching South Sydney Rabbitohs would be his dream job.

Now, it has been reported that Michelle Bishop that NRL clubs are circling the former England boss as he was compared to some of the best coaches on the planet.

“I can confirm two NRL clubs have made serious inquiries about luring Eddie Jones to the NRL to coach their clubs,” Bishop told SEN.

“They’re investigating the possibility and they are very serious about it.

“He is no stranger to the game. He had a lot to do with rugby league in his earlier days.

“I see Eddie Jones as a Bellamy, Bennett, Meninga, good with people and being able to get that side of the job done.

“If he gets the right people around him, I would be excited to be at that rugby league club. I’m a fan.”

Meanwhile, according to Zerotackle the number of clubs circling him could increase.
