Eddie Jones has invited David Moyes to England's training camp ahead of this weekend's Calcutta Cup clash.
David Moyes is one of Scotland's highest-profile coaches in football and has been welcomed by Eddie Jones to observe training and take part in a Q and A with the team.
Moyes, the West Ham manager, assistant coach Stuart Pearce, former Spurs striker Les Ferdinand and England Women's and Brighton coach Hope Powell have all attended England's camp at Bagshot today.
Jones has spoken about his admiration for Moyes and the way in which he has begun to rebuild his career at West Ham following his infamous periods at Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland.
This is not the first time Jones has turned to football for inspiration, he has previously spent time working with Chelsea's Antonio Conte and Manchester City's Pep Guardiola.
The use of the training method 'tactical periodisation' is one Jones has kept no secret of using, a theory described as Jose Mourinho's best-kept secret to success. Jones has discussed his interest in football, stating: 'The thing that really impresses me about football, which hasn’t really happened in rugby so much, is that the players are individually highly skilled,” he said. “Rugby has improved a lot – having been professional for only 20 years – but the skill level has not improved so much and that is something which really interests me.”
In the past, Jones has commented on the fear of failure in English football at major competitions. His side have gone on to win 24 of 25 test matches, but prior to his tenure, England were famously knocked out of their own home World Cup during the pool stages.
