The RFU have confirmed that England Rugby coach John Mitchell has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract extension.
The 56-year-old, who joined Eddie Jones coaching team in 2018, will now continue to work with the Aussie up until after the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
“I’m really happy to sign this contract extension. I’m thoroughly enjoying my time here with England and working with such a talented group of players, coaches and staff,” said Mitchell.
“It takes a long time to really build these relationships and I wanted to continue to carry on the work that we’re all doing to achieve just what we’re capable of here with England.
“I also think it’s the right place for me to evolve and challenge myself as a coach, I’m learning all the time and that’s only going to help me to improve the players and contribute more to this team. I really feel we have the potential to do some special things here.”
Eddie Jones said: “I’m very pleased to have Mitch here with us as we work to our goal of winning the World Cup in 2023. He’s an experienced and skilled test coach and adds great value to the coaching staff and player development.”
