Head Coach

England rugby appoint Borthwick to replace Eddie Jones

The 43-year-old, who worked under Jones with Japan and later England, was the strong favourite to take up the position after the Australian's sacking and leaves his role as head coach of Premiership club Leicester Tigers.

"I'm deeply honoured to be appointed England head coach and I am very excited by the challenge," said Borthwick, who has signed a five-year contract with the RFU.

"The English game is full of talent and I want to build a winning team which makes the most of our huge potential and inspires young people to fall in love with rugby union the way I did."

Dymock has coached the NSW Tongan juniors since 2006 whilst also being appointed by many clubs to assist in defensive training.
