Eddie Jones: changes on the cards for France 'slogathon'

Stuart Hogg and Scotland have been revitalised by victory over England

What I think Eddie Jones should do and what I think he will do are two completely different things and I believe he'll have a short term approach to the game this weekend and pick a team with the sole focus of beating France because we're still in the tournament after all. "If we can create that big mountain for them to climb I think it will be quite hard for them to get back". Are we going to win a World Cup playing the way we are at the moment?

England head coach Eddie Jones has confirmed he is pondering breaking up his tried and tested midfield partnership of George Ford and Owen Farrell for his side's pivotal Six Nations clash against France on Saturday. I don't have anxiety - I have coached for 20 years and if I was anxious for 20 years I would be dead.

The Wasps No 8, who returned from injury in the loss in Edinburgh, believes England need to come out of the blocks strongly against Les Bleus if they are to secure back-to-back wins in the French capital following their 2016 victory. I think he deserves a run in the side now and the France game is the flawless time to start that run so that he can help to combat Mathieu Bastareaud as well. "We've had to sit on it for a couple of week".

Jones is also one of the leading contenders to take charge of the British and Irish Lions for their next tour, to South Africa in 2021. "When you're out and not sure you're going to get back in, to be involved and work with the excellent coaches we've got here has been fantastic".

"I've got a lot of minutes into the legs so I'm ready to go if I get the nod to play this weekend", he said. High performance means you've got to perform.

Whitaker said Jones' record as coach of England - they have won 24 of their 26 games since he succeeded Stuart Lancaster following their pool stage exit at the 2015 World Cup - simply put him in the conversation.

"If I change from morale booster to actually being involved in the team it will be great!"

"I can't sleep because it annoys me losing a game [to Scotland] that we shouldn't have lost".
