Eddie Jones Brings In Irish Sporting Legend To Motivate England Ahead Of World Cup

Pep talk.

England head coach Eddie Jones brought in a very special guest this week to motivate his squad as they continue to build ahead of the World Cup in Japan later this year.

The Australian brought in none other than Roy Keane on Tuesday where he spoke about his incredible career with Manchester United to the likes of Owen Farrell and co – before having lunch with the backroom staff.

Jones apparently “loves Keane’s uncompromising nature and his strong leadership skills”, which he hopes will rub off on his current crop of England stars as they look to go all the way in Japan.

England take on Wales this weekend in the first of their warm-up games with Jones naming an experimental side. Wales boss Warren Gatland however has gone with a very strong line-up for the clash, picking mostly frontline starts.
