Eddie Jones has reportedly secured the signing of his new defence coach

Former All Blacks coach John Mitchell has reportedly finalised a deal to join Eddie Jones as England’s new defence coach.

South African newspaper Die Burger reports Mitchell has been released from his Super Rugby head coaching role at the Bulls after the Rugby Football Union agreed to pay a transfer fee.



The fee reportedly sat between £150,000 and £200,000.

Mitchell will now assist Jones as the team looks to turn around their recent form in time for next year’s Rugby World Cup in Japan.
