Eddie Jones has to Ready if England are to win RWC 2019

In the run-up to the 2011 Rugby World Cup, the All Blacks held a series of “What if?” conferences. “We talked regarding worst-case scenarios,” Jerome Kaino remembered and Kieran Read said: “The worst would be if Dan Carter and Richie McCaw get harmed.” The head coach Graham Henry didn’t actually think that would happen ‘surely not possible’ he told himself but he wanted to plan for it anyway.

Seven months out from the World Cup, it feels as if Eddie Jones continues to be so busy working out through the best-case situation that he hasn’t had time to concerning about the worst nevertheless.

Jones has built an England squad who are capable of beating anyone, so long as they need their key players fit, as they did against Ireland in Dublin at the start of the month. Then again you get to those “What ifs?”. It’s pretty simple to work out what the worst of these are.

Jones surely is aware of all this. Like every international coach, he will have his depth chart, marking the chain of command of players in each position. However, take the list at fly-half. There’s Farrell, so Ford, who seems to be lucky to get off the bench, and beyond him, perhaps, Danny Cipriani, who has been frozen out since last summer. Or at scrum-half, where, after Youngs, Danny Care has been dropped from the squad and Robson can’t appear to urge a game.

Few would deny that Jones contain a first fifteen who are robust enough to win the World Cup in Japan. However, unless they get terribly lucky, they are going to prove they can do it without them, too.

Rugby World Cup 2019 – Warren Gatland’s ability to grab best from Wales bodes

The Six Nations trumps the rugby football Championship for preparation. Wales, European country and Ireland have an opportunity of glory in Japan. Before the beginning of the Six Nations this month, Ireland was thought to be Europe’s prime challengers within the Rugby World Cup. Then it had been European country when their emphatic victory in the capital of Ireland and denuding of France at Twickenham, however within the third round the odds on the favorites New Zealand turning into the primary team to win the Webb Elis Trophy for a 3rd consecutive time shrink.

Rugby World Cup 2019 – Warren Gatland’s ability to grab best from Wales bodes

“Wales won by default in Six Nations clash with England,” blared one headline in New Zealand this week. The rubbish remarked to the lack of space either side manufactured with the ball in hand however, matches within the knockout stage of a World Cup can be just as claustrophobic.

Gatland’s ability to squeeze the most effective out of his team has made him the media favorite to interchange Eddie Jones as England’s head coach, whenever which will be with the Australian contracted until 2021. England sounded out Gatland, who had enjoyed a trophy-rich stint with Wasps earlier in the decade, in 2007, a few weeks before Wales called him, however, failed to follow it up.

England, the country everybody likes to beat, would vary, as would its domestic system. Gatland is that the master of Welsh rugby football wherever, as in Ireland and New Zealand, the national team is at the highest of the pyramid. Jones needs to deal with a strong union of clubs who have become emboldened by an infusion of cash from a private equity company. There could be trouble ahead. Jones has largely remained above the politics however, non-interference has not been an approach taken by Gatland.

We won’t play like that, though. There were a few guys out there that hadn’t played a lot of rugby so we weren’t as tight in the front five as we would have liked. We made those changes because we are trying to look ahead to the World Cup. We didn’t have as much momentum and tempo as we would have liked, but we’re looking at the Six Nations and trying to build for the World Cup.”
