Head coach Eddie Jones watched England defeat South Africa 12-11 on Saturday and then claimed the media want him sacked. The Red Rose have endured a disappointing 2018 as they failed to defend their Six Nations title and lost two of their three Tests against South Africa in the summer tour.
However, after winning the final Test in June, they battled to a hard-fought narrow victory at Twickenham to get their autumn internationals off to a winning start.
But when asked if it was the most important victory of his three-year tenure due to England’s poor results earlier in the year, Jones hit out at the line of questioning.
He said: “(The) most important thing is what we do next. I don’t understand this guys, we’re a bloody good team. “We’ve lost a few games, we played tough and we won (today). Why has it got to be the most important game?
“Because you guys (the media) want to sack me, is that why? You’re going to do it at some stage, you know that. “If I stay long enough, you’re going to get me sacked, so one day you’re going to be happy.”
