I am delighted to be sending you my best wishes for your forthcoming tour to Australia and New Zealand.

Going on rugby tour is an exciting experience, and one not to be missed!  Travelling to the Southern Hemisphere will be an incredible experience for you, where you will learn a great deal.  The chance to experience the culture of another continent, especially one so passionate about their rugby, will be very special.

I hope all the preparations and training go well and that you play good rugby!

Wear your shirts with pride and play as a team and for those team mates you have been brought up playing alongside over the past few years.

A special bond is created by those on tour – the experiences you’ll share with your team mates will never be forgotten.  Enjoy it, don’t waste a minute.  Be enquiring, enthusiastic and eager to learn!

Good luck,

Eddie Jones
England Head Coach
