Former England Coach Eddie Jones Signs Long Term Deal With Australian Rugby

Former England head coach Eddie Jones has been appointed Australian head coach replacing the sacked Dave Rennie.

Jones who was released from his role with England following the 2022 Autumn Nations Series will lead Australian Rugby through to the 2027 Rugby World Cup.

The 62-year-old previously coached Australia between 2001-05 leading them to the 2003 World Cup final where they were bested by England.

In the eighteen years since he last coached the Wallabies, Jones has amassed a Rugby CV that would rival any in the game.

Jones would go on to win the 2007 World Cup with South Africa’s Springboks as an advisor before being appointed as Japan head coach in 2012.

Jones would then lead the Brave Blossoms to a historic victory over the Springboks at the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Following their shock victory over the Springboks, Japan would go on to reach further heights and are now recognised as a genuine tier one rugby nation.

Following his immensely successful stint with Japan, Jones was appointed to the England head coach role following their disappointing 2015 World Cup campaign.

In his seven years with England, Jones immediately righted the ship as he took England to a Six Nations Grand Slam in 2016 and a World Cup final appearance three years later.

During his time with England, Jones surpassed World Cup winning coach Sir Clive Woodward as the most winning England coach in history with a 73%-win ratio.

Now back in his home country, Jones has the mighty task of leading the Wallabies to the next two World Cups. In addition to his responsibilities with men’s game, Jones will also oversee the women’s game during his tenure.
