Eddie Jones: Rugby maverick [9781911630166]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The first biography of the enigmatic coach who has completely transformed the England rugby team.

After Eddie Jones began coaching England's rugby team in November 2015, they won 22 of their next 23 matches. The side that limped out of the last World Cup was thoroughly revitalised.

But who is the unconventional figure responsible for this change of fortune? And will he be able to sustain his brilliant track record in the run-up to the 2019 World Cup?

From his school days playing alongside the legendary Ella brothers to his masterminding of Japan's jaw-dropping victory over South Africa in the 2015 World Cup, Eddie Jones has always been a polarising figure, known for his punishing work ethic.

Constantly controversial, never complacent, Jones has truly shaken up English rugby. Drawing on over a hundred interviews with former teammates, players, administrators and coaching colleagues, veteran rugby writer Mike Colman brings a rare level of insight to his biography of this singular man.


AUTHOR: Mike Colman is an assistant editor of the Courier-Mail newspaper in Brisbane and the author of several books on sporting figures and military history.
