Bristol maintain no agreement is yet in place to allow Steve Borthwick to join Eddie Jones’ England coaching team.
Jones was appointed as Stuart Lancaster’s replacement in November after an impressive stint in charge of Japan and has set about building his own coaching set-up.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Rugby Football Union announced former England captain Borthwick, a line-out specialist who worked with Jones with Japan before joining Bristol, would take up a new role as forwards coach.
However, Bristol subsequently released their own statement stressing no permission had been given for the RFU to speak to Borthwick about the role.
