Eddie Jones traveled to Lille, Arras and Le Touquet ahead of the 2023 Rugby World Cup which will take place in France. The coach of the England team was in scouting to choose the best site for the training of his players.
“In 2023, we want to be the team everyone will remember,” said Eddie Jones, more motivated than ever to have his players walk away with the Webb Ellis Trophy under his arm. Lille is one of the 10 host cities, and the Pierre Mauroy stadium will host five matches including two with the English. For optimal performance, players must be well settled once they arrive in France, with a comfortable hotel and an ideal field for training. This is exactly what their coach came looking for this week. Three cities were selected for his visit: Lille, Arras and Le Touquet.
For the moment Jones has not yet wished to speak but according to our information, the English would opt for the city of Lille, with training at the Stadium of Villeneuve-d’Ascq. The accommodation has not been revealed, it will undoubtedly be announced at the end of December.
The former Wallabies player, Australia’s rugby team, had been to France before during his career. He remains pleasantly surprised by the hospitality of the Northerners: “I am impressed by the enthusiasm of the people here to host the Rugby World Cup. You can see that everyone is behind this event.” In addition to being a benchmark in the world of rugby, the English are very often accompanied by their loyal supporters when they are on the move. There are already more than 25,000 places sold to fans of the rose, enough to boost the economy and local tourism.
The victory of the French against the All Blacks last Saturday did not really impress Eddie Jones who keeps a cool head “Certainly they played very well but we must not forget that the New Zealanders had been in the competition for a long time, they were therefore more tired than the French “. He still considers the blues as opponents “During the competition we will have very important games. We will play our first game against New Zealand and it could have important repercussions on the rest of the competition”. Son of a soldier, the one his relatives nickname “Fast Eddie” has reserved a major training for his team, made up of very young players.
