Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
England boss Eddie Jones has landed himself a head coach role after the World Cup. The Australian has agreed to coach the Barbarians in their November 16 match at Twickenham against Fiji.
It will be the first time Jones has taken charge of the invitational side – who famously defeated his England team in Twickenham last year with Chris Ashton bagging a hat-trick against his home nation.
“It’s a huge honour to be invited to coach the Barbarians.” Jones said
The club perfectly embodies the values and traditions of the sport and fans can expect to see an exciting match between two sides who like to play end-to-end running rugby.
“This is a massive year for international rugby and I’m looking forward to returning to Twickenham after a successful World Cup campaign to coach a Barbarians team containing some of the stars of the tournament.”
Warren Gatland will then take the reigns from Jones when the Barbarians take on Wales at the Principality Stadium on November 30.
