Former England rugby coach Sir Clive Woodward believes Scott Robertson has all the credentials to take the helm of the national team, should Eddie Jones move on.

A poor showing in the Six Nations and criticism around his coaching methods has made Jones' future uncertain.

UK media has touted Robertson as the perfect replacement.

Woodward - who led England to their 2003 World Cup victory - told Martin Devlin what makes the current Crusaders coach special.

"Clearly, he's a winner, he's successful, he's very good with people."

He says that Robertson would "love it" if he got the job.

"I just get a really good feeling about him. Even though I'm kind of old now, would I like to play for him? Yes, without even knowing him, just from seeing the way his team plays."
