Eddie Jones Summary

Eddie Jones: Rugby Maverick by Mike Colman

The first biography of the enigmatic coach who has completely transformed the England rugby team.

After Eddie Jones began coaching England's rugby team, they won 22 of their next 23 matches. The side that limped out of the 2015 World Cup was thoroughly revitalised. But who was the unconventional figure responsible for this change of fortune? And, given recent setbacks, will Eddie be able to inspire England to bring their best to the 2019 World Cup?

From his school days playing alongside the legendary Ella brothers to his masterminding of Japan's jaw-dropping World Cup victory over South Africa, Eddie Jones has always been a polarising figure, known for his punishing work ethic. Constantly controversial, never complacent, Jones has truly shaken up English rugby. Drawing on over a hundred interviews with former teammates, players, administrators, coaching colleagues and Jones himself, veteran rugby writer Mike Colman brings a rare level of insight to his biography of this singular man.

Eddie Jones Reviews

Personalities don't come bigger than Eddie Jones, whose colourful and somewhat crazy rugby career was always going to make a blinding book...Mike Colman was knocked back in his attempts to make this an authorised biography but pressed ahead anyway - and it was certainly worth the effort. Colman has stolen a march on any subsequent accounts of Jones's life...It makes for very entertaining reading. * Rugby World *
Jones is a fascinating bloke and if you are interested in rugby or coaching or management this is a fascinating read. * Rugby Spy *
