England should place trust in Eddie Jones, claims Neil Back


Neil Back has urged Twickenham to keep faith with embattled head coach Eddie Jones in the belief he is best equipped to lead England out of their slump.

England fell to their worst Six Nations performance by finishing fifth, placing Jones at the centre of a Rugby Football Union investigation into what went wrong, with a verdict due in mid-April.

RFU chief executive Bill Sweeney has promised a “brutally honest analysis” and has declined to give Jones public support as the Australian fights for his future.

Jones’ win ratio of 77 per cent is appreciated at Twickenham and Back, England’s World Cup-winning openside, believes his success in plotting a route out of a similarly-troubled period once before must count in his favour.

“Eddie’s a good coach and his record speaks for itself, so I wouldn’t get rid of him. There’s a lot of pressure on him, but that will make him even better,” Back said.
