Cape Town - If reports are to be believed, Eddie Jones will have the dubious honour of perhaps the shortest reign as Stormers "coach" - or any coach - in history!

Jones officially started his tenure as Stormers boss on November 1, 2015.

However, a mere seven days later, Jones appears to have jumped ship and accepted the vacant England coaching job.
