- June Test will pit Jones against team he coached for seven years
- Australian’s Japan return confirmed despite his previous denials
Eddie Jones is poised to launch his second tenure as Japan head coach in a mouthwatering reunion with England next June after his return to the Brave Blossoms was confirmed.
Jones’s appointment to the Japan position was announced on Wednesday, ensuring a third international job in the space of 12 months after his sacking as England head coach last December, followed by his disastrous spell in charge of the Wallabies. England are due in Tokyo to face Japan next June before a two‑Test tour of New Zealand, giving Jones an early opportunity to lock horns with his former charges.
