    i honestly think tony bliar should do it-he could have the opposing players tortured before the game, and if they still won, do it again after. he could divert the opposing players aircraft to albania or somewhere for interrogation purposes-england would know all the line out calls.

    even if they got knocked out in the quarters they could just kit up and run out for the final anyway after giving the other team a shot of polonium-if anyone said england shouldnt be in the final and "thats illegal" - im sure the governor general would uphold englands stance.

    If the lessons of history teach us anything it is that nobody learns the lessons that history teaches us.

            Jones was coach of the Australian side who lost to England in the 2003 World Cup final but was fired last year.


            "Having coached at international level I'd like to do so again and a job coaching England is one of the biggest in the world," he said.


            Jones also sees a semi-final berth at the World Cup as a realistic ambition. <!- E SF ->


            "There are only six sides competing for fourth spot, so the chances of reaching a semi-final are pretty good," he added in an interview in the Sunday Times.

            With just eight weeks until England start their 2007 Six Nations campaign, speculation is mounting over who will replace Andy Robinson as head coach.


            Robinson was axed last week after winning just nine of his 22 games in charge.


            A host of names have been linked with the England job, including Jones, former South Africa coach Nick Mallett, Harlequins coach Dean Richards and former Wasps and Ireland coach Warren Gatland.


            <!- S ILIN ->606 DEBATE: Is Jones an ideal short-term solution for England? <!- E ILIN ->


            "Nobody wants to see England doing poorly because it is not in the interests of the game globally," said Jones, who is coach of Super 14 club Queensland Reds.


            "So if the RFU asked me to look at a 10-month contract through to the end of the World Cup, I would most definitely give it serious consideration."


            Jones, who has also coached at English club Saracens, said he would be happy working with the existing specialist coaches in the England set-up and would bring in former rugby league player Andy Farrell as centre.


            He was also impressed with Gloucester fly-half Ryan Lamb.


            Next year's World Cup, hosted by France, takes place from 7 September to 20 October.<!- E BO ->

                wonder how Gaffney would handle the job. he can certainly get the most of players, he might just be too nice for it

                  The problem for England supporters is that the job has become something of a poisoned chalice since the WC. The next England boss will have all the financial resources he needs but he'll have little control over the development and wellbeing of the players.

                  Personally I think Dean Richards would be great for the job but he seems to have fallen out with some people in the RFU so it'll probably never happen.

                    They should go for Gatland if he wants it and then employ someone like Ryan as his assistant. who would take over either after the world cup or build alongside Gatland towards 2011. Gatland may have eyes on a bigger job for 2011 though!


                    I don't see the big deal about Ashton, he might be a good backs coach but could he pick a good team? Look at the terrible terrible terrible teams he picked for us! He hardly set the world alight with Bath as coach last season.
