Carling expects England coach to quit

2:17 pm on 19 October 2011

The former England rugby captain Will Carling believes Martin Johnson will quit his role as England coach.

Johnson's position is under review by the England Rugby Football Union and he has been given until next Tuesday to decide whether to reapply for his position.

Carling agrees that Johnson has improved as a coach and doesn't think he deserves to be sacked, however he says something must change after England's poor performances in New Zealand.

He says he doubts Johnson will want to continue after a disappointing World Cup campaign.
