-police their own di

  • 21 May
    The day Eddie Jones imposes a curfew on his England team will be the day he believes he has the wrong leadership group at the core of his squad.As the Football Association conducts an investigation to determine exactly what happened on Saturday evening with England football captain Wayne Rooney, Jones backed his squad to self-police their own discipline off the field.Jones dismissed any need for a curfew, saying he expects Englands leadership group of captain Dylan Hartley and vice-captains Billy Vunipola, Owen Farrell and Mike Brown to maintain discipline.But when asked whether he would ever consider imposing a curfew, he answered if that were to happen then he would have the wrong captain and the wrong vice-captains.He added: [The England team] are professional sportsmen who have the privilege of playing for England. They have to do everything to be at their best for England.If they do anything outside of that, then they dont want to play for England.Every player is different; weve got players in this group that have transgressed. If they transgress again, theyll be in trouble. Weve got players with perfect records.Everyone makes a mistake so everything is looked at individually, we dont have any set rules or regulations about how we treat them.Central to self-policing squad discipline is captain Hartley. He says he trusts individuals to make the right decisions and said following Saturdays match against Fiji, the players will turn attention to their next Test against Argentina.It is a different policy to the previous regime under Stuart Lancaster, which ex-England captain Will Carling described as prescriptive, a classroom-orientated environment where players were treated as schoolboys.Under Jones, Hartley feels England have just gone the other way.We just trust in the guys to make good decisions, Hartley said. We dont have an A4 sheet with rules written on it.We just trust the guys to do the right thing. Luckily we havent had any issues as of yet. We just treat men like men and you get men.
