Rugby - England head coach Jones extends contract until 2021

(Reuters) - England head coach Eddie Jones has signed a contract extension to keep him in the role until 2021, the Rugby Football Union (RFU) said on Wednesday.

Jones, who took over the reins at England in November 2015, was originally contracted until the end of the 2019 World Cup campaign in Japan.

The 57-year-old has led England to consecutive Six Nations triumphs and series wins in Australia and Argentina.
