Sacked from his position as coach of the England team in early December, Eddie Jones should not work with the Wallabies in the coming months. While the Australian Federation had contacted him about a possible arrival in the framework for the World Cup in France (September 8-October 28), coach Dave Rennie ruled out Monday to collaborate with Jones.
“There are no plans to make any changes to the coaching staff at this stage”
“It won’t happen before (the World Cup), he told reporters on the sidelines of a training camp. We had no discussion about it. There are no plans to make any changes to the coaching staff at this stage. What happens after 2023 is another question. »
Under contract until the end of the year, Rennie survived dismissal despite a dismal 2022 record (just five wins in 14 Tests). Jones, sacked by England in December, said to Sydney Morning Herald last month that the last few years had been very trying for him and that he would be ” difficult “ to coach another team at the World Cup. But, he added, “If someone comes up and the offer is too good to refuse, I’ll consider it”.
