England coach, Eddie Jones to be SACKED today following dismal run of five wins in 12 Tests 1

Eddie Jones is set to be SACKED by England today after head coach was summoned to a showdown meeting with RFU chiefs on Monday afternoon following dismal run of just five wins in 12 Tests.

Sportsmail understands that they have resolved to remove him from his post after seven years in charge of the national team.

Sources indicated that the recommendation was due to be put to the union council on Monday night and the board on Tuesday, to be ratified. An announcement on the abrupt end of Jones’s regime is expected on Tuesday afternoon, once the full process has been concluded.

Once that happens, Leicester head coach Borthwick will be brought in to replace Jones, months earlier than planned.

Jones had enjoyed full backing in the corridors of power at Twickenham until recently. He survived an uncomfortable review after England lost three games out of five in the latest Six Nations — as they had done a year earlier.

Jones’ future as England head coach is in doubt after a disappointing run of results

But when the team were booed off after being beaten 27-13 by South Africa last month, at the end of an autumn campaign which yielded just one win from four fixtures, it appeared to cause his employers to run out of patience.
