England coach Eddie Jones has been awarded with a contract extension by the RFU.

Having previously been contracted until the end of the 2019 World Cup in Japan, the extension will see the Australian remain in the role until August 2021.

“Coaching England is a dream job for me, and I was delighted to be asked to stay on after Rugby World Cup 2019,” said Jones.

“I have been completely focused on developing a team capable of being the number one rugby team in the world and winning the World Cup in 2019. I never take my role as England head coach for granted and did not presume I would be asked to stay on, but, once the conversations started very recently, it was not a difficult decision to make.

  1. Was Eddie the secret sauce behind SA 2007 WC Triumph?
    Though Jake White is still a stalwart for his renewal of Brumbies & whatever the name of that team in France.
    He needs to get involved again or forever have his legacy tainted.
    Feel free to copy / paste & send to his agent.
    Time to get back on the horse Jake !
