Ellis Genge is not sure what more he can do to convince Eddie Jones to pick him — but he has promised not to sulk if he is left out of England’s match-day 23 again.

Leicester’s raging-bull prop had limited playing time at the World Cup and he is set to be third-choice loosehead behind Mako Vunipola and Joe Marler again.

Asked how he can prove his personal ambition to the head coach, Genge said: ‘F**k knows man. I don’t know. I have done it all in terms of speaking to him.

‘I think the biggest thing is, if you don’t get picked, don’t throw your toys out of the cot. Don’t sulk. No-one has ever been picked off the back of sulking, otherwise I would start sulking!

‘It is pretty s**t not playing. It is tough, but you have to keep your head down and keep working.

‘He (Jones) is a fair man. If he thinks you should play, you will play. He doesn’t hold grudges. He puts everything on the table. He doesn’t work in the shadows.’
