• Farrell can be like Australia’s George Gregan, says Jones
• Coach not sure if Dylan Hartley will return as captain
Eddie Jones expects Owen Farrell to rule through fear as captain in South Africa next month but believes the playmaker cannot repair the north-south divide within the England squad alone.
Farrell takes over from the absent Dylan Hartley for the three-Test tour against the Springboks and Jones has already expressed concerns of a lack of unity with the England squad. Of the captains he has worked with, Jones believes Farrell is most like George Gregan, the former Australia scrum-half who led the Wallabies to the 2003 World Cup final.
