The Rugby Football Union says it has reached an agreement with Bristol to release former England captain Steve Borthwick from his coaching contract with the Championship club. In a statement, the RFU said that Borthwick would start work “with immediate effect” as England forwards coach.

Borthwick worked alongside Australian Jones during the World Cup this year,as the minnows won three pool games.

RFU chief executive Ian Ritchie said: “We very much appreciate that our approach for Steve has come at a challenging time for Bristol during the season, and in such circumstances I thank them for reaching this agreement.”
