Eddie Jones led England to the World Cup final

Little more than two weeks after leading England to the final of the World Cup in Japan, Jones will be at Fylde Rugby Club in Ansdell on Tuesday, November 19, promoting his autobiography.

All places at his lunchtime talk and signing session were snapped up weeks ago as it became the fastest-selling author event organised by Lytham bookshop Plackitt and Booth.

A massive wave of interest continued, particularly during England’s World Cup run, during which they beat Australia and New Zealand before losing out ot South Africa in the final - and an extra signing session has now been arranged earlier in the daty.
