The first image of Kiwi actor Temuera Morrison portraying well-renowned rugby coach Eddie Jones in an upcoming film has been published on social media.
Morrison is portraying the Australian coach in a new film about Japan’s famous 34-32 win over South Africa at the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England, with the working name of The Brighton Miracle.
Jones – now head coach of England – was then the Japan boss and the mastermind behind the Brave Blossoms’ dramatic win.
