England coach Eddie Jones has called on the services of former Wallabies flanker George Smith to work with his forwards on an informal basis ahead of his first match in charge against Scotland in next month's Six Nations opener.
Sport: The week's best plays
From last-gasp winners to brutal hits, these are the most exciting, silly and downright crazy plays in the sporting world this week.
Smith, who made 111 appearances for Australia, is widely regarded as one of the greatest openside flankers of the modern game and is currently playing for English side Wasps.
Jones said he was keen to call on Smith's help in a bid to try and improve England's work around the breakdown, an area that was a weakness during a disastrous Rugby World Cup campaign.
"We sat down and had a coffee last week," Jones told Sky Sports News on Wednesday (Thursday AEDT).
"He's going to pop down next week and do a bit of breakdown work with the back rows.
"It's a very informal relationship, more about the friendship I have with George, but he's obviously a world class player and our players can only benefit from his tuition."
