Eddie Jones: England head coach signs contract until 2021
England head coach Eddie Jones has signed a two-year contract extension to stay in the role until 2021.
The 57-year-old Australian’s previous deal ran until the the end of the Rugby World Cup in Japan next year.
Jones has won 22 of his 23 Tests since taking the role in November 2015, and says extending his deal was “not a difficult decision”.
“Coaching England is a dream job for me, and I was delighted to be asked to stay on after the World Cup,” he said.
“I have been completely focused on developing a team capable of being the number one rugby team in the world and winning the World Cup in 2019.
“I never take my role as England head coach for granted and did not presume I would be asked to stay on, but, once the conversations started very recently, it was not a difficult decision to make.”
