Eddie Jones backs Owen Farrell to make impression as England captain

Rugby


Eddie Jones believes Owen Farrell will rule by fear after comparing the England captain’s leadership style to that of Australia great George Gregan.

Farrell has replaced Dylan Hartley as skipper for next month’s tour to South Africa while the Northampton hooker takes an extended break from the sport to recover from concussion.

Jones wants the Saracens playmaker to stamp his own authority on England and envisages him inspiring through his forceful nature as well as deeds on the pitch.
