Eddie Jones is an Australian professional rugby union coach and former player. Jones is the current head coach of the England national rugby union team. Prior to this, Jones coached the Australian national team during the 2003 Rugby World Cup and also coached the Japanese national team for three years, leading up to the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
Jones was named as the new England head coach in November of 2015. He agreed to a four-year deal, becoming England’s first foreign head coach, that would see him lead the English team into the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Jones has brought Steve Borthwick into the team, who also coached Japan with him. The coaching team led England to their first Grand Slam since 2003, having beaten all of their opponents in the 2016 Six Nations Championship.
In Jones’ first home game as the England’s head coach, he led them to a 21-10 victory over Ireland, before going onto beat Wales 25-21 in the following week. England secured the Championship when Scotland beat France, thus meaning that England was going into the final round, having already secured the title. A successful victory over France in the final game of the 2016 Championship, saw England win their first Grand Slam since 2003.
Jones then took his English side to tour Australia for a three-test series against the Wallabies, which saw England win the series. This was England’s first ever three-test series victory. In the first test, England scored the most points against Australia, in which they won 39-28. The second test saw England win their third consecutive match against Australia on Australian soil, winning an impressive 32-7. This turned out to be a record winning margin for a game that was on Australian soil. The final test confirmed the whitewash, winning 44-40. During the second series, Jones had led England from fourth, to second in the world.
