Head coach Eddie Jones says he is not over England 's Rugby World Cup final defeat by South Africa. "It goes through your head all the time, it is not something that gets lost easily," Jones told BBC "We will look at selection in terms of that - how can we build a side to win the next World Cup ."

(Reuters) - England coach Eddie Jones said he should have played Joe Marler ahead of Mako Vunipola at loosehead prop in the Rugby World Cup final which they lost in Japan, the Australian said in his new autobiography.

England, who were chasing only their second World Cup title, were defeated 32-12 in Yokohama earlier this month and Jones said he was left to rue his decisions.

"I accept that I made two selection mistakes for the final," Jones wrote in his new autobiography 'My Life and Rugby' which is being serialised in The Times newspaper.

Eddie Jones: 'They were too good for us'

  Eddie Jones: 'They were too good for us' England head coach Eddie Jones admitted his side simply weren’t good enough as they lost to the Springboks in a bruising World Cup final. The Australian was speaking after South Africa dominated the game, eventually winning 32-12. Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbie scored brilliant tries towards the end of a game that England were never really in, leading to a historic moment for South African rugby, with flanker Siya Kolisi – raised in a Port Elizabeth township and the first black Springbok captain – lifted the William Webb Ellis trophy.After his side’s defeat, Jones said: "We just couldn’t get on the front foot.

"George Ford could have come off the bench when we had got into the game. But you never know until the game starts. You use the best available evidence and rely on your gut."

After England had dominated Australia in the quarter-final, they stunned defending champions New Zealand in the semi-final and Jones fielded the same starting 15 that beat the All Blacks against South Africa, but the move backfired.

"I had been right against Australia and New Zealand but, as it turned out, in the biggest game of our four-year cycle, I got it badly wrong. Hindsight is a wonderful teacher," Jones added.

"There's also a psychological challenge after the kind of big win we achieved against the All Blacks," Jones said.

"While we did play well, I thought the analysis was a bit over the top. Everyone was slapping us on the back, saying how fantastic we were, how it was the best ever performance by an England team and the best ever win at a World Cup.

"The praise was everywhere. The challenge is to bring the players back to reality. It changes the structure and narrative of the week."
