Jersey Reds Assistant Coach Ed Robinson is joining up with England Rugby for a second time this year.

He will spend a month working with Eddie Jones and the England Squad as they prepare for their three summer matches.

It follows a call up in January for the Six Nations tournament.

England Head Coach Eddie Jones has added both Ed Robinson and Alex Codling to the coaching team.

"We’re very pleased to have Alex and Ed join us this summer.  They will provide hands-on skills coaching in attack and lineout fundamentals to a young and developing squad."

England play two Test matches at Twickenham Stadium, against USA (Sunday 4 July) and Canada (Saturday 10 July). An England A side will also play Scotland A at Mattioli Woods Welford Road in Leicester on Sunday 27 June.

Robinson says he's delighted by the call up:

"It’s an honour to be invited to coach England again, I am grateful to Eddie for the opportunity.

During the Six Nations I learned a lot about how Eddie likes to prepare the team, as well as developing myself in the art of coaching.

I am looking forward to getting back with England and working on developing the attacking play."

Jersey Reds have called it 'yet more evidence of the Championship pathway to the top level of the game...'
