Robinson still not quite out the door

The fate of England’s much disliked head coach Andy Robinson is still unclear after talks failed to produce a resolution on Tuesday afternoon.

The talks appearrd to have ended when Rugby Football Union elite director Rob Andrew left Twickenham just before 1500 GMT without making a comment to the media.

He did however return at around 1640 GMT but still didn’t comment.

The talks appear to be centred over his severance package as he wants to be paid for the remainder of his package.

Even though it is believed that RFU chief Francis Baron, elite director Rob Andrew and chairman Martyn Thomas asked Robinson to resign Robinson is digging his heels in and wants to stay on. Robinson had been due to take part in three days of World Cup meetings starting on Tuesday in Paris but team manager Viv Brown has gone instead.

South African coach Jake White was also meant to go to the meetings in Paris but he too will miss them as he has returned to South Africa where he will face questions concerning his future.

England have lost 13 of their 22 Tests under Robinson and have slumped to seventh in the IRB world rankings.
