Eddie Jones changes coaches as he seeks a fresh approach for England

Able deputies: Proudfoot PICTURE: GETTY

ENGLAND have finalised their Six Nations coaching team by naming Matt Proudfoot and Simon Amor as assistants to Eddie Jones.

Former Scotland prop Proudfoot will run the forwards, having performed the same role for South Africa as they lifted the World Cup last year.

The 47-year-old will also have responsibility for the scrum, with England dispensing with a specialist after Neal Hatley’s departure to Bath.

Amor, 40, currently head of sevens at Twickenham, will replace Scott Wisemantel, who stepped down as attack coach after the World Cup.

Steve Borthwick moves to skills coach from the pack while former New Zealand boss John Mitchell will continue to mastermind the defence.

Jones said: ‘The Six Nations is a fresh start for the team so that is how we’ve approached our coaching staff.

‘Matt has had an outstanding coaching career and we feel he can take the forwards to another level.

‘We have had our eyes on Simon for a while. He will bring a fresh view on how we build our attack.’
