Eddie Jones takes training at Sudbury

Sudbury’s first-team squad got a taste of what it’s like to be an England player, when the Red Rose head coach Eddie Jones took them for a training session on Friday night.

There as a thank-you to Sudbury head coach Ben Scully, who worked with England in an internship role, Jones put the players through their paces ahead of their game with Saffron Walden ton Saturday (April 22).

“It was phenomenal,” said Scully.

“I mentioned a few weeks ago that Eddie might visit and the players thought I was having a laugh, so for the dream to become reality, is fantastic.

“The players could not believe how fast the session was, it certainly shows you how intense it is to be an England player.”

He added:“We have had 500 watching a training session tonight and if Eddie’s visit inspires kids to play or keep playing, or gets people into the club who havent been before, then that’s a big bonus.”
