Re: RWC England v France - OFF!

I suspect losing to Australia in the Q-F could cost Jones his job.

I'm not sure it would, or should. England have lost to Australia lots of times, though we have a great record against them in World Cups. Perversely, that's worrying me - the fact that we are pretty much overwhelming favourites. Cheika would 'absolutely love' to put this one over Eddie.

Distractedly watching Aus vs Georgia, though, Australia seem to be doing a very poor imitation of Exeter.

Seen a bit of the game today and Georgia's defence seems very well organised.

Losing in the Q-F would be viewed as failure for England and I personally believe that those who fail in their job should expect to be fired.
