The former Australian and now Saracens coach Eddie Jones has urged England manager Martin Johnson to name New Zealand-born first five Glen Jackson in his squad for the Six Nations.

The five-eight's starred in Saracen's win over Bristol on Sunday with a 15-point haul making him the first player this season to pass the 150-mark.

Questions have arisen over England No 10 Danny Cipriani's goalkicking and general game management at Test level and Jones believes Jackson is just the man to steady the ship.
