England rugby coach Eddie Jones is heading back to Fylde.

The Australian wowed fans with a booking signing appearance at Fylde Rugby Club’s Blackpool Road ground in Ansdell shortly after leading his side to runners-up spot in the 2019 World Cup.

His appearance to talk about and sign copies of his autobiography, at a literary lunch organised by Lytham bookshop Plackitt and Booth, was the fastest selling of the many such events proprietors Alison Plackitt and Pat Booth have hosted over the years.

Eddie has been England coach since 2015, having previous led Australia to a World Cup final and also coached South Africa and Japan.

His new book draws on stories of nearly 30 years of coaching, including the 2003, 2007, 2015 and 2019 World Rugby campaigns, the full story of England’s 2021 Six Nations campaign as well as why it takes humour, humility and relentless curiosity to create teams that are relentlessly hungry to win.

The literary lunch with Eddie at Fylde includes a two-course meal, author talk and question and answer session, as well as a copy of the book and a welcome drink.
