Cape Town - Eddie Jones' unofficial 'record' for shortest time spent in a coaching role may well have been broken by Kings coach Brent Janse van Rensburg!

Jones, who was confirmed as Stormers coach during the 2015 Rugby World Cup (on September 21), only officially took up his role on November 1.

The Western Province Rugby Union (WPRU) then sensationally confirmed their news that Jones was packing his bags for England on November 20.

Meanwhile, Janse van Rensburg was confirmed as Kings coach for the 2016 Super Rugby season on November 18.

On December 2 - exactly 14 days later - Janse van Rensburg quit the Kings.

They say records are there to be broken, but seriously?!
