England coach Eddie Jones may have to self-isolate after returning to London from Japan.

Matt Proudfoot, the England forwards coach, is also out of the country, visiting family in South Africa. 

“We will ensure all coaches are back in sufficient time to be fully available for when international rugby resumes,” said an RFU spokeswoman.

John Mitchell and Simon Amor, the other two members of Jones’s coaching team, are currently in the UK.

It’s looking likely that their tour to Japan later this year will be cancelled.
