Eddie Jones: A closer look at his record in England

Eddie Jones7 years tenure as England head coach came last on tuesday.

Jones will retire as a three-man from the post he inherited from Stuart Lancaster in 2015. Six Nations title and rugby world cup the end of his name.

However, England won only 5 of 12 tests in 2022, their worst year since 2008.

Here, the PA news agency looks back on his record.

early success

Jones led England to victories in 59 of his 81 games, winning 73% of the time, beating all his predecessors, including World Cup winner Sir Clive Woodward (71%).

Despite his overall record, Jones’ tenure was full of ups and downs.

It started with a record 17-match winning streak and just one loss in the first 25 Tests. This period spanned his two-plus years and resulted in his consecutive Six Nations titles, including his first Grand Slam since 2003.

England then suffered a stunning recession in 2018 (the year before the World Cup), losing five games in a row between February and June.

They turned around in 2019, famously beating host New Zealand en route to the World Cup final before being overwhelmed by South Africa.

Decline after the World Cup

Winning his third Six Nations title in 2020 enabled Jones to extend his contract until the end of the 2023 World Cup.

His win rate was 78% at that point, but has since dropped to 63%.

England have lost three of their five Six Nations games in both 2021 and 2022, but have won just one of their four games at Twickenham this autumn.

Notably, England’s form this year has been similar to 2018, both losing six times in 12 tests.


Jones spent over seven years as head coach of England, six months longer than Woodward and the longest of any of his predecessors.

Australians were never afraid to make big decisions.

Appointed in the aftermath of England’s disastrous group stage exit at the 2015 World Cup, Jones chose the controversial Dylan Hartley (a player with a history of discipline problems) as captain.

It paid off handsomely, with Hartley leading England to victory in 25 of 28 Tests as a skipper.

Jones’ England played head-to-head with equal or better results against all opponents.

Of their main rivals, England struggled the most under Jones against Scotland and South Africa, losing as many games as they won (3 and 4 respectively).

In contrast, they dominated Jones’ native Australia, winning 10 of 11 Tests.
