• Posters in Sapporo show Jones advertising gin
Eddie Jones is capitalising on his profile in Japan during England’s World Cup campaign with a number of commercial deals despite being the best-paid coach in international rugby.
Jones’s latest endorsement is for a Japanese gin called Roku, with posters on show here where England begin their World Cup campaign against Tonga on Sunday. Roku is a subsidiary of Suntory, which owns the Sungoliath club that participates in the nation’s professional league. Jones also has a paid consultancy role with the Top League side.
