Home England 5 contenders to replace Eddie Jones

5 contenders to replace Eddie Jones

by Saba Gulmagarashvili

The bookies are already predicting who will succeed Eddie Jones as England’s next head coach.

Following their less-than-compelling win over Wales, the Australian, who has lost five of his past ten Six Nations matches, is under pressure.

Find out who the current favourites are to succeed Jones at Twickenham in 2023, when his contract expires, or possibly sooner.

Andy Farrell – 22/1

The irony with Farrell is that he is undoubtedly the most obvious choice and suits the post as well as anyone, but due to his long-term contract with Ireland, he may be the most difficult for the RFU to land.

Scott Robertson – 18/1

Roberson is regarded as one of the best coaches in the southern hemisphere. The 46-year-old is multiple winner who possesses all of the necessary qualities to restore Eddie Jones’ side’s hungry winning mindset.


Rob Baxter – 10/1

Baxter is approaching the 12th anniversary of his service as Exeter Chiefs’ manager, and it may be difficult to lure him away. But there’s no denying his qualifications; during his tenure as head coach, the Chiefs have changed dramatically.


Rassie Erasmus – 8/1

He conquered the world with South Africa in 2019 and the only logical next step after such a feat would be to take the grandest and most high-profile job in world rugby. It is not a far-fetched notion, either; reports in the South African press last year suggested that Erasmus had held talks with the RFU about succeeding Jones, which were subsequently denied. He’d also been recently linked with Harlequins.

Warren Gatland – 2/1

If they go with Gatland, they’ll be getting a man with a wealth of international experience who helped transform Welsh rugby during his 12 years in command, which ended in 2019. With a slew of international awards under his belt and an already in-depth understanding of English talent because of his continuous participation with the Lions, he is undoubtedly the least risky option on the list.
