Jones be­lieves Ford will be bet­ter than Bar­rett

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Eng­land head coach Ed­die Jones be­lieves his fly­half Ge­orge Ford can be­come a bet­ter player than New Zealand ace Beau­den Bar­rett if he learns to be more self­ish. “Peo­ple rave about Beau­den Bar­rett but I don’t. I just think Ge­orge has got a great feel for the game,” said Jones. “He needs to work on his run­ning game a bit, needs to be more of a threat him­self. He’s ac­tu­ally too self­less. He needs to be a bit more self­ish with the ball at times.” The 23-year-old Ford has ex­celled un­der Jones as Eng­land have gone on a run of 11 straight vic­to­ries.
