• Send Eddie back to ‘Table Top Mountain’ – Readers

    The results are in, and SARugbymag.co.za readers have decided that England coach Eddie Jones should return to Cape Town if he gets sacked.

    Jones is expected to learn his fate next week as the England RFU is busy conducting an investigation into their fifth-place finish at the 2021 Six Nations.

    After a poll on this website, the majority of readers decided that Jones’ next move should be to return to the Stormers, should the investigation result in him losing the England head coach job.

    The Australian was named as the Stormers’ head coach back in November 2015 after completing his World Cup duties with Japan. However, he infamously left the Cape team just eight days later to replace Stuart Lancaster as England head coach. The Stormers ended up appointing Robbie Fleck as their new head coach.

    Just over 63% of votes went to the Stormers, which could be an indication of the insecurity that the team’s fans are feeling under the current leadership. The next favourites were the Lions, with 13,38% of votes.

    Meanwhile, it is clear that fans of the Vodacom Bulls and Sharks are confident in Jake White and Sean Everitt, respectively. The Bulls received the lowest tally, with just 3,10%, while the Sharks only got 8,97% of votes. Both teams recently contested the 2020 Currie Cup final and appear in good stead under their head coaches.
