Jeremy Guscott calls for England to appoint Woodward & Jones


Ex-England star Jeremy Guscott has called on the RFU to appoint Sir Clive Woodward to a senior role in the wake of their Rugby World Cup embarrassment. Current coach Stuart Lancaster faces an uncertain future after England became the first hosts to bow out of the tournament at the pool stage. And speaking exclusively to Sports Tonight, Guscott believes the appointment of Woodward could in turn see Australian Eddie Jones become England's new coach. "I think if [Sir Clive] Woodward is given the job of director of elite rugby at all levels for England he will approach Eddie Jones," said Guscott. "He had some good sparring battles with Eddie over the years. I believe he respects him and Eddie has got a national side to the Rugby World Cup final and he's done an amazing job with Japan."
