Eddie Jones to Join Tuilagi Rugby Academy Camp in New York


Founder of Tuilagi Rugby Academy Lauaki Fereti “Freddie” Tuilagi has announced the involvement of England head coach, Eddie Jones, at the next rugby camp in New York.

The four-day camp scheduled for summer in the US from 16-19 August 2021 at the Hudson Sports Complex in New York will give young rugby enthusiasts the chance to be taught by the world’s best.

The former Wallaby coach is arguably the most experienced coach on the planet with Rugby World Cup outings for Australia, South Africa, Japan and England.

Eddie Jones coached Australia between 2001 and 2005, taking the team to the 2003 Rugby World Cup Final. He was an assistant coach for South Africa when the Springboks won the 2007 Rugby World Cup and from 2012 to 2015 he coached Japan, leading them in their 2015 Rugby World Cup upset win over South Africa.

Appointed head coach for England in 2015, Jones led his side in back to back wins of the Six Nations Championship in 2016 and 2017 becoming the second international rugby team to have ever gone an entire calendar year undefeated. He led England through the 2019 Rugby World Cup where they beat defending champions New Zealand in the semi-final before losing the final to South Africa.

And in August 2021, he will be passing on his extensive knowledge of the game to youngsters at the Tuilagi Rugby Camp in New York.
