Eddie Jones has been warned by the Rugby Football Union that England are expected to reverse their recent slump by delivering a successful autumn campaign.

The team's five-Test losing run came to an end with a 25-10 victory in Cape Town on June 23 - but the series against South Africa had already been conceded three months after falling to an alarming fifth-place finish in the Six Nations.

Jones retains Twickenham's backing but must produce a strong November series against the Springboks, New Zealand, Japan and Australia to ease speculation over his future.

"We plan to win every game we play. We expect success in the autumn," RFU chief executive Steve Brown said.

"I don't want to predict failure, I'd rather predict success, but that's not in blind faith. They're all big matches. We're planning to come out of the other side successful."

"The last result in South Africa was important, but not critical to any decisions we make about the future.

"The confidence comes from the history to date and talking to Eddie about the plans for the autumn and the World Cup and how to get back to that win rate.

"I've discussed this with Eddie and I'm confident those disappointing results are behind us and can be turned around."
