While the ever-controversial head coach of England, Eddie Jones, seems to be disliked as much as he is lauded, his record at World Cups is outstanding.

He has brought both England and Australia to finals, and won the trophy as assistant coach with South Africa, while his crowning glory was arguably leading the Japanese in their defeat of South Africa in 2015.

In a recent interview, he shared what he feels is a key element for teams heading the 2023 World Cup who have ambitions of taking the top prize.

“You don’t want to be static and you don’t want to show everything. If you show everything then teams come up with plans to stop you doing that.

“We want to win every Test in November but we don’t want to be showing any tactical developments that maybe we’ll want to use in the World Cup.


“You don’t want to show it in the warm-up games. You want to be able to do it on the training paddock consistently then be able to do it bang at the World Cup.”

“I reckon there’s still a bit to do. There’s still a bit in the tank. I rang up the boss of the Barbados IPL and he’s not interested…”

“The one thing you want to be doing from here to the World Cup – and every coach will say the same – is improving,”
