Jones set for future talks with RFU

England head coach Eddie Jones says a decision will be made on his future following imminent talks with the Rugby Football Union.

Jones is due to fall out of contract in the summer of 2021 but it remains to be seen whether he will see it out, never mind pen a new one, and all should become clearer in the next few weeks.

England secured the Triple Crown thanks to their 33-30 victory over Wales at the weekend and Jones says talks are planned with RFU chief executive Bill Sweeney when his future should be on the agenda.

"We've got dinner organised in a couple of weeks so we may be able to chat about it," Jones said. "It must be his shout. I'll take a Triple Crown to show him."

Jones has also suggested he never enjoys coaching, which could be an indication he is ready to step aside some time soon.

"I never enjoy coaching. Winning is a relief. Anyone who tells you they enjoy coaching is lying," he said. "All you do is coach hard. If you win you feel good for 24 hours and then you're back into it. That's all it is.

"It's a choice you make. You get to coach these extraordinary, gifted players. You give them something that helps develop them as a player and a person.

"The joy you get from that is unbelievable, but generally any coach who says they find coaching enjoyable is probably not telling the truth."
