Pattinson hails Eddie Jones 'the best coach in world sport' after hosting breakfast webinar

Windsor RFC coach Jack Pattinson hosted a special webinar with the England head coach Eddie Jones on Saturday morning, and called the man who led England to the World Cup final last autumn 'the best coach in world sport'.

Pattinson - who works as an academy coach at London Irish - spoke with the England coach for an hour for his Saturday breakfast webinar ‘The Jack & Fish Breakfast Show’, which he hosts alongside Jonathan Fisher, an academy forwards and u18s head coach at Irish.

“It was an unbelievable experience,” said Pattinson.

“I know I’m biased but I think he’s the best coach in the world at the minute.

“Not just in rugby but in all of sport.

“Success for us was trying to get him engaged and I think he enjoyed the conversation.

“Some of his insights and ideas were just brilliant. He’s such an engaging character.

“He’s got an opinion and he’s not too worried if he upsets anyone with that opinion.”

This Saturday’s guest on the webinar is Huw Jennings, academy director at Fulham Football Club. While at Southampton he nurtured the likes of Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott, Luke Shaw and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain through to the first team.
