England RU have drafted in Melbourne Storm’s defence coach Jason Ryles on a short-term basis.
Ryles will work with England’s defence for the next two weeks in preparation for their Test match again South Africa on November 12.
The Storm coach is working with England at a warm-weather training camp in Portugal, working alongside England’s defence coach Paul Gustard.
“Melbourne Storm have been in six of the last 11 NRL Grand Finals,” England head coach Eddie Jones told BBC Sport.
“Relentless defence has been their trademark and that’s what we want.”
“Gustard has done an outstanding job in putting that defence together, so we just want that to get better,” Jones added.
“It’s a great learning opportunity for the coaches and the players. Defence is one of the pillars of our game.”
