Richard Cockerill joined Eddie Jones’ England rugby lineup as a forward coach yesterday, alongside another Australian rugby league guru.
After the departure of defense coach John Mitchell to Wasps and because Aussie coach Jason Ryles was unable to join England due to Covid restrictions, Jones has renewed his team two years after the World Cup in France.
As Sportsmail predicted last month, Cockerill, the former England hooker and ex-coach of Leicester and Edinburgh, is joining the pack alongside Matt Proudfoot.

Jones also invaded his homeland for defense coach Anthony Seibold – a 46-year-old Australian who most recently led the Brisbane Broncos in rugby league Down Under.
Jones, who also took over offense coach Martin Gleeson from Wasps last month, said: “We are two years away from the World Cup so we wanted to refresh our coaching team and get the right people in place for where we want to go. is to win the World Cup.

“We have added Richard to the team to work with Matt to create a dominant forward peloton. He is a former England player, has great coaching experience and comes in as a well rounded, mature, driven English coach.
‘Anthony is a coach with whom I have had a relationship since 2019 and have followed his career closely. He is a good coach and thinks deeply about the game.’
England have also confirmed that they will meet for a mini-camp from September 26-28 in London, then prepare for the November tests against Tonga, Australia and South Africa by training in Jersey at the end of October.
