England have roped in Scott Wisemantel as an attack consultant for the upcoming tour of South Africa that kicks-off next month.

The 48-year-old has already worked under Eddie Jones during the 2015 World Cup campaign with Japan and also has an experience of specialist coach for Samoa in 2011. He has also worked with Wallabies as skills coach between 2004 and 2007.

He has also coached Japan's Toyota Verblitz, Australia's New South Wales Waratahs, France's AS Montferrand and Lyon apart from his recent association with Montpellier.

"He's a very good coach, he coached with me with the Wallabies and with Japan," said Jones.

"He has done Super Rugby with the Waratahs, coached successfully in Europe with Lyon and Montpellier, has a wealth of experience, great energy and I think he'll just add a little bit for this tour.

"I talk to him all of the time, we're constantly in dialogue - whenever he's available I want to use him."

The three-match series between England and South Africa will be played between 9th and 23rd June with Johannesburg, Bloemfontein and Cape Town being the venues.
