UPDATE: Following the breaking news earlier, it has been confirmed that Martin Johnson has resigned. The RFU have called a press conference for 4pm at Twickenham with Johnson and Rob Andrew.
Breaking news from the Daily Mail is that Martin Johnson is set to announce his resignation today, just one day before the meeting of the Professional Game Board. The following is taken from the Daily Mail website:
Martin Johnson is expected to resign as England coach today. Sportsmail understands that Johnson is on the brink of quitting after the calamity of the World Cup. England were knocked out by France in the quarter-finals – but it was their off-field behaviour that will be remembered.
The futures of John Wells, Graham Rowntree, Brian Smith and Mike Ford are all therefore in doubt following Johnson’s resignation, while the RFU have not confirmed that Rob Andrew’s future is secure either.
Candidates who have been suggested by the media to replace Johnson include Jim Mallinder, Nick Mallett, Sir Clive Woodward and Graham Henry in some shape or form.
Has Johnno made the right decision? Or has he jumped before being pushed?
