Eddie Jones Puts England🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Future Aside to Focus on Barbarians

  |   Ghana News / Sanews / Rugby / Nigeria News / Kenya News / Zimbabwe News

Eddie Jones is only thinking about the Barbarians this week after refusing to talk about his future as England head coach.

The Australian will be in charge of the invitational side on Saturday when they do battle with Fiji at Twickenham.

It will take place only two weeks after Jones' England lost to South Africa in the World Cup final and he has a number of Springboks in this Barbarians squad.

His contract with the Rugby Football Union is only until 2021, but earlier this month RFU chief executive Bill Sweeney admitted it "makes sense" for the 59-year-old to continue until the World Cup 2023 in France.

"The only thing I've been worried about this week is coaching the Barbarians. It's a highly enjoyable experience and it's a great honour," Jones said.

"There is nothing to think about. It is done and dusted. I can't do anything about what's happened. The only thing I can do is what I do next.

"The next thing I'm going to do is make sure this Barbarians' side play some great rugby, so that's the only thing I'm worried about."

South Africa World Cup winners Tendai Mtawarira, Lukhanyo Am and Makazole Mapimpi are in Jones' Barbarians squad for this Killik Cup match.
