England rugby coach Eddie Jones

England rugby coach Eddie Jones wants to coach test rugby from the sidelines like football managers.

Jones says that he has tried it out during his time in Japan and he sees that it is beneficial.

He adds he will not be spending the entire 80 minutes prowling the sidelines but hopes to get a closer look at the action during the second half of the games.

Jones has always been looking to evolve his coaching style and influences from other sports, and he believes that rugby can learn in this area from football.

Under the current system, most coaches work in designated areas in the grandstands alongside their assistant coaches, analyzing play from the field and getting information feeds off laptops.

Strategies are relayed to the team via water carriers and other management on the sidelines.
