England Fans Call For Eddie Jones Dismissal After Shocking Argentina Performance

England Fans Call For Eddie Jones Dismissal After Shocking Argentina Performance

England have suffered yet another poor defeat on the biggest stage, losing 30-29 at home to Argentina in their November international this afternoon.

It was a shocking performance from Eddie Jones' side, with the margin of victory flattering the hosts. They were outplayed by their South American opponents, who have recorded their first win over England at Twickenham since 2006.

The Argentines certainly played the better of the rugby, including this fantastic try just after the interval.

While England would stay within touching distance throughout, with the teams trading penalties in the closing stages of the game, they can certainly have no complaints about the result.

It marked a famous victory for Argentina and their coach Michael Cheika, who has only just finished coaching Lebanon at the Rugby League World Cup.

As for the other head coach on the day, this is just the latest in a long run of poor results.

England fans call for Eddie Jones to be sacked

England's form over the last couple of years has been absolutely dire. They have won only four games over the last two Six Nations campaigns combined, an incredibly poor return for a squad with their resources.

It would have been hoped that Eddie Jones was slowly building the side with an eye next year's World Cup, but there are few signs of any progress being made. The side continues to look plodding in possession and without any clear plan in attack.

As a result, many believe the time has come for the Aussie to step aside.

In many ways, the RFU have backed themselves into a corner regarding Eddie Jones. They opted against dismissing him after this year's Six Nations, the ideal time to do so if they were going to give a replacement time to work with the squad ahead of the World Cup. Now, they are probably stuck with the current head coach until the tournament in France.

England will face Japan next week, another fixture in which they will be expected to win. Should they fail to do so, the powers in charge of the team could be forced to bite the bullet when it comes to their current coaching ticket.
