“Hockey guy” – Eddie Jones confirms unexpected coaching appointment

England head coach Eddie Jones has confirmed that Danny Kerry MBE has joined the England staff as training coordinator.

Jones said: “I’ve known Danny for a long time and his depth and breadth of coaching knowledge will be a real asset to us as staff as we work towards becoming the best coaching team in the world.

“Joe will move back to an analyst role where he has a real impact and suits his strengths and skills.”
