Jersey Reds coach joins Eddie Jone's England coaching team

Ed Robinson will join the England coaching team for their upcoming Guinness Six Nations campaign.
 
Robinson, who is assistant coach at Greene King IPA Championship side Jersey Reds, will be part of Eddie Jones’ staff for the tournament.  He will support on skills coaching following Jason Ryles’ decision to stay in Australia for the spring due to the challenges caused by COVID-19.
 
England meet up next week at St. George’s Park as they begin their preparations for the championship.
 
They will then move to their base, The Lensbury in Teddington, ahead of their first game against Scotland at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 6 February (4.45pm KO).
 
Jones will name his 28-player tournament squad on Friday [22 January].
 
Jones said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming Ed to our coaching staff for the tournament and we’d like to thank Jersey Reds for their cooperation and support in making it happen.

“He’s a talented young coach and will work to help the players improve.
 
“We understand and support Jason’s decision and are expecting that he will be back with us this summer.”
 
Harvey Biljon, director of rugby at Jersey Reds, said: “First and foremost we are really excited for Ed. It’s a fantastic experience for a young coach and he deserves this opportunity.
 
“At Jersey we’re very proud of our record of producing players that have gone on to play at the highest levels and it is very encouraging that one of our coaches is getting a chance to work at that level too.”
