Wallabies could go after Eddie Jones

"I'll be raring to go really because of the performance when we lost in Scotland".

Jones, who also has a break clause in his contract after the World Cup, coached Australia for four years before an unhappy parting of ways in 2005.

"Last night, I woke up at 4am", said Jones on Tuesday, as he delivered a message that not even the regular midfield pairing of George Ford and Owen Farrell was indispensable if a different combination was deemed likely to work better against the French. Is it time Eddie Jones appointed a new captain?

"In my job you either get abused, you get slapped on the back and told how good you are or you get advice, so it's always one of those three coming at you".

Ben Te'o could return to the England XV against France.

Jones and Cheika are former Randwick teammates and Jones ran rings around his younger rival in a 3-0 whitewash of the Wallabies in Australia in 2016.

Tens of thousands of cheerleaders possibly exposed to mumps at national competition
In 2016, 6,366 cases were reported - the worst year for mumps in the USA since the MMR vaccine program was introduced in 1977. The MMR vaccine, which protects against measles, mumps, and rubella, is given during childhood, although it's not foolproof.

You're picking Dylan Hartley as a leader but there was no leadership at all in that England side against Scotland, so now is as good a time as there's ever going to be to make a couple of changes and roll the dice a bit.

"A lot of times the issue at global level is inexperience", Whitaker said.

Aussie Jones, 58, has led England to 24 wins from 26 games since replacing Stuart Lancaster in 2015 and Whitaker has been impressed.

"That's the thing that was made very clear by Eddie early on".

Another factor in any potential contract talks is that Jones' England employers have said they won't stand in the way should he want to coach the British and Irish Lions in their 2021 tour of South Africa.

However, he has spoken from the very start about reaching number one in the world and winning a World Cup.

"I've coached for 20 years".

"We'll be talking to Michael right through into the World Cup and beyond, and he will be a part of that process", Whitaker said.

"And b, leaving a legacy, a real positive legacy that sets this place up, so the next person that comes in can take it beyond where it was".
