Chances for next England head coach: Steve Borthwick, strong favorite to replace sacked Eddie Jones, Cockerill and Baxter Trail

STEVE BORTHWICK is the strong favorite to replace sacked England head coach Eddie Jones.

That’s according to bookmaker Betfair, who installed the Leicester Tigers boss and former England ban at 1/8 for the vacant position.

England relieved Jones of duties on Tuesday after a disappointing autumn season in which he recorded one win in four games.

The 62-year-old leaves the team after leading England to a World Cup final and three Six Nations titles in his seven years.

The decision leaves England without a boss just nine months before the Rugby World Cup.

Whoever gets the role will boost their tenure against Scotland in the Six Nations in February.

And Betfair are confident Borthwick will be the man to be entrusted with the coveted position.

Borthwick spent seven years as Jones’ right-hand man for Japan and England before becoming rugby director at Leicester Tigers.

Richard Cockerill is next at 5/1 to permanently swap his coaching role for the top job, followed by Rob Baxter at 10/1.

Betfair spokesman Sam Rosbottom said: “Bets suggest it’s a one-horse race for the next England manager, with Steve Borthwick the clear 1/8 favorite to replace the sacked Eddie Jones.

“Poor form has cost Jones his job as England manager and his replacement won’t have much time until the Six Nations where England win 5/1 and then things quickly come to a World Cup in France with the Red Roses 6/1 to triumph.”

Following Jones’ departure, Rugby Football Union CEO Bill Sweeney said in a statement: “He has the highest win rate of any previous England head coach and has helped develop the leadership skills of many players and coaches.

“I am grateful to Eddie for everything he has done for England in many areas of the game and for the professional way he has reviewed the team’s performance.

“He provided the panel with wise insights and meaningful lessons that will support future team performance.”

Jones himself added: “I am pleased with a lot of what we have achieved as an England team and look forward to watching how the team performs in the future.

“Many of the players and I will no doubt stay in touch and I wish them all the best in their future careers.”
