“This is the most difficult position” – Eddie Jones reveals the four English fly halves he is watching
England head coach Eddie Jones has revealed his list of four candidates to replace Owen Farrell and become England’s next number 10.
Of his four picks, Jones commented, âMaybe they’ll all get the opportunity to get up to speed next year,
âIt’s the most difficult position in world rugby. You have so much pressure, so little time and space, a lot of decisions to make, so this is a fantastic opportunity for one of the young guys to step up.
Eddie Jones added, âWe’re really looking forward to bringing in some younger guys. Now is the right time for us in terms of planning for the World Cup.
THE FOUR FLIES OF EDDIE JONES TO WATCH FOR:
Smith’s rapid rise shows no signs of slowing down – it took barely a year for him to go from captain of Brighton College in an unbeaten season to involvement in the senior England squad.
The Harlequins star, who balances flair with good management of the game, seems like the obvious choice to be Eddie Jones the next number 10 after being called up for the Fall Nations Series.
DID YOU KNOW? Marcus became the second youngest Premiership debutant in history, behind George Ford, in his bow to the Harlequins against the 18-year-old, 200-day-old London Irish in September 2017
