England have identified Saracens head coach Mark McCall as their next potential head coach, according to a report in The Guardian.
McCall recently led Saracens to their third European Champions Cup win in four years, making him one of the most successful Premiership Rugby coaches in history.
“According to good sources, the RFU has earmarked McCall as its preferred candidate to succeed Jones.” Robert Kitson writes in The Guardian
A move for the former Ulster head coach would make perfect sense for the RFU. On top of the three European titles, McCall has won multiple Premierships too.
He also works day-to-day with some of England’s top internationals and has played a key role in their development, including Owen Farrell, Maro Itoje, George Kruis, Mako Vunipola, Jamie George and Billy Vunipola among others.
But the question is who he leave Saracens? Only time will tell. The one thing we would say is he can’t really achieve much else with them. Perhaps he fancies a fresh challenge?
An Englishman in charge of Ireland and an Irishman in charge of England. Just imagine it.
