Eddie Jones has given another helping hand to Brighton College at the start of the SOCS Daily Mail Schools Trophy.
England’s head coach has used the college for international training camps in recent seasons and has become a regular guest coach.

That buzz has already helped Brighton to wins at Cranleigh and Hurstpierpoint in this annual competition, sponsored by the school management system SOCS, for over 100 teams.
