According to Rugbypass Top 14 side Castres Olympique are set to be front runners for his signature with current head coach Pierre-Henry Broncan announcing the addition of Jones.

Broncan went on to say that Jones would not be joining the club immediately but would be coming in on a consultancy basis.

“It’s a complicated period for him, he has want to go back to Japan because his wife is Japanese and his mother is there. He will recharge his batteries in Japan at first. Then he will come here.”

“Eddie Jones will be on the market and he will quickly be picked up by a club or a nation, he will not be free for long. For the moment in a period like this, he needs to breathe, to put himself aside a little”.

“I met him when I was in Bath, he is someone who is really passionate about rugby. He arrived at my house on Thursday evening and since we watched Béziers-Mont-de-Marsan, impressed to see all these ProD2 matches televised. He likes it, it’s as if it were two hunting fans talking together.”

“He was in Lille for the allocation of training camps on Monday. He will leave at the end of the morning tomorrow, coffee at my place with another coach. Even the players were happy. It’s Mr. Eddie Jones, quite simply.”

In addition to the Castres connection, Jones is rumoured to be heavily coveted by several international and club set ups including his home country of Australia who are looking to add further expertise to the Wallabies coaching staff ahead of France 2023.
