England have added Championship side Jersey Reds backs coach Ed Robinson to their coaching group for the upcoming Six Nations tournament.

Robinson will assign the role of skills coach after Jason Ryles is set to miss the competition after failing to relocate from Australia to London due to the coronavirus lockdown.

The 27-year-old already has worked with Rotherham Titans, Clifton and Loughborough Students and now will miss the first three rounds of the Championship competition for the Reds with the competition scheduled to start on 6th March.

Meanwhile, England coach Eddie Jones along with attack coach Simon Amor will be isolating themselves after forwards coach Matt Proudfoot tested positive for Covid-19.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming Ed to our coaching staff for the tournament and we’d like to thank Jersey Reds for their cooperation and support in making it happen," said Jones.

“He’s a talented young coach and will work to help the players improve.

“We understand and support Jason’s decision and are expecting that he will be back with us this summer.”

England will start their Six Nations campaign with a clash against Scotland at Twickenham Stadium on 6th February.
