Eddie Jones feels no bitterness over the way his England reign ended as he prepares to make his first appearance at Twickenham since being sacked by the Rugby Football Union.
Jones takes charge of the Barbarians against a World XV on Sunday in a brief interruption to his new duties as Australia head coach.
He departed in December as England’s most successful boss with a win rate of 73 per cent, but the decline in results over the last two years compelled the RFU to act and Steve Borthwick was appointed in his place.
When asked if he had any regrets over his exit, Jones replied: “No, none at all.
“I had a great seven years here, I loved it. I bet I’m the last foreign coach who coaches for seven years here. First and last.
“Loved my time here and I’m looking forward to Sunday. The sun is shining. It will be unbelievable.”
“I never worry about things I can control. I don’t control that, so it’s no use even thinking about it,” he said.
