Eddie Jones is a towering yet reclusive figure in world rugby today, and a true legend of the game. In Eddie Jones: My Life in Rugby he tells his story for the first time, including the full inside story of England’s 2019 World Cup campaign. The man is one of the most experienced and decorated coaches in the international game and his career has spanned four World Cups; from losing to England in the 100th minute in 2003, working with South Africa when they won in 2007, and causing the greatest upset in 2015 when he masterminded the Japanese defeat of South Africa.
Since taking over as head coach of England in 2015 Eddie Jones has masterminded a complete revival of the national team. He has won the Six Nations Championship back-to-back, including England’s first grand slam in a generation, their first ever whitewash of Australia, as well as taking them on their longest ever winning streak.
In this honest and frank autobiography Jones shows how his fiercely competitive attitude, his love of coaching and his philosophy of the game were formed while growing up in a tough working-class suburb of Sydney as a small half-Japanese child, playing schoolboy rugby alongside the legendary Ella brothers.
Eddie Jones: My Life in Rugby is the story of one of the most compelling and singular figures in rugby and is the ultimate rugby book for all fans of the sport this Christmas.
