Two England coaches step down with immediate effect

England coaches Simon Amor and Jason Ryles are stepping down from their coaching roles with the senior men’s team with immediate effect.

Amor and the RFU have mutually decided to part company while Ryles has chosen to stay in Australia with his family due to the challenges created by the ongoing pandemic.

Eddie Jones said: “I’d like to thank Simon and Jason for their contributions to England.

“I would like to commend Simon’s outstanding diligence and his hard work, and I have no doubt he will find a role soon that suits him perfectly.

“With Jason, the COVID-19 restrictions have proved too difficult for him and his family to overcome, which we fully understand but are disappointed for us and the team.

“They both leave with the best wishes of everyone involved with England and for their future pursuits in the game.”

England’s summer series fixtures will see two test matches at Twickenham against USA (Sunday 4 July) and Canada (Saturday 10 July). An England A team will play Scotland A at Mattioli Woods Welford Road, Leicester (Sunday 27 June).
