CONFIRMED: England boss Eddie Jones to add attack coach for upcoming tour

England boss Eddie Jones has confirmed he will respond to his side’s poor Six Nations showing by bringing in an attack coach for the upcoming tour of South Africa.

Jones has been without a backs specialist since Rory Teague left the set-up to join Bordeaux last May.

He told BBC Sport: “We are looking to take another coach on tour, and I’ve got the right person for this tour.

“When the time is right we will announce it. It’s certainly someone I have worked with before.”

Former Australia international Glen Ella has assisted Jones on a handful of occasions over the past two years, most notably on the summer tour of 2016, when England defeated the Wallabies 3-0.

Former Leicester, Bath and England utility back Sam Vesty has also been involved, helping England to a series victory in Argentina in 2017, and could be available on a short-term basis before joining the Northampton Saints.
