With Six nations 2020 fast approaching, England Head Coach Eddie Jones has tightned his coaching staff through the appointment of Simon Amor and Matt Proudfoot.
Proudfoot will work together with John Mitchell and Steve Borthwick who switches to skills coach. Proudfoot is rich in experience having coached Western Province, Stormers in South Africa and Kobelco Steelers in Japan.
Jones believes he can take the England forwards to the next level.
” He brings technical expertise and knowledge. We believe he can take the forwards to another level and build on great work Steve and Neal have done for the past four years.”
Proudfoot having coached Englands rugby world cup final opponent looks foward to doing England great.
Amor on the other hand takes up attack coaching having left his position as head of England’s sevens mens and womens programme. He was headcoach of Great Britain sevens which grabbed a silver in 2016 Rio Olympics.
Jones said Amor will bring a fresh view in how to build their attack.
“We have had eyes on Simon for a while and i have been impressed by his rugby dynaminism and intellect which will bring a fresh view on how we build our attack.”
Amor will return to his duties as head coach of England and GB sevens after the six nations to continue preparing for the Olympic games in Tokyo before joining Eddie Jones full time post Olympics.
“I love my country and i love coaching. This opportunity to work at the highest level for my country is something i am incredibly passionate about and i am honoured to be joining Eddies coaching team.” Amor added
