Eddie Jones keen to coach England

4:54 pm on 17 November 2011

Former Wallabies coach Eddie Jones has thrown his hat into the ring for the England job, following Martin Johnson's resignation over England's poor World Cup campaign.

Jones' interest came after former South Africa and Italy coach Nick Mallett knocked back Rugby Football Union overtures to replace Johnson.

Jones insists the rewards of getting England back on track are enormous with the 2015 World Cup to be played on home soil.

He says England has a fantastic domestic competition and very, very good players and the team should be good enough to win the next World Cup.
