THE APPOINTMENT of new England boss Eddie Jones has been given a big thumbs up by pupils at Warwick School who got special coaching tips by the man himself during the Rugby World Cup,

Jones was the head coach of Japan before he replaced Stuart Lancaster as England’s top boss, but during the World Cup his Japan side used the school as a training camp for two weeks.

During that time Jones gave Warwick’s first team a special coaching session alongside former England skipper Steve Borthwick, who is rumoured to be joining Jones’ coaching team at national level.

Mark Nasey, director of rugby at Warwick School, said: “Having witnessed a number of the training sessions there is no question that Eddie is of  the necessary international standard to drive England forward given the right support from the RFU. We wish him and the England squad all the very best for the future.”
