A warning for Eddie Jones
IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Northampton Saints head coach Chris Boyd is not ready to let one of his coaches go and join England’s backroom staff.
Eddie Jones is currently looking for a new attack coach after the departure of Scott Wisemantel.
According to the Guardian, Saints’ Sam Vesty is a top target to take Wisemantel’s place in the England coaching group.
However, Boyd has issued a hands-off warning to Jones.
“I wouldn’t be releasing him, that’s for sure,” Boyd told The Guardian.
“I suppose everybody’s got their price if it’s about money [but] Sam Vesty’s more about job than money, I think.
I’m pretty sure he’s happy with what he’s doing at the moment.”
Meanwhile, the Sydney Morning Herald has reported that Wisemantel is in negotiations with the Wallabies to join Dave Rennie’s coaching team.
