Scott Wisemantel

Scott Wisemantel has departed from his role as England attack coach, the RFU confirmed today. 

Wisemantel joined the England setup ahead of the summer tour of South Africa in 2018 with the Australian having a big impact during his time with the national side.

Wisemantel’s contract expired at the end of the 2019 Rugby World Cup but he has opted not to continue in the role.

“Scott’s contract finished at the end of the Rugby World Cup and we had some discussions but he has decided to move on,” Jones said.

“Whatever role he takes on next I know he will do an outstanding job because he was fantastic for us. We will miss him but we wish him all the best and his family.”

It is being reported that Wisemantel may take up a role with Australia with Dave Rennie who was named head coach of the Wallabies earlier this month.

England scrum coach Neal Hatley has already departed to Bath and according to numerous reports, forwards coach Steve Borthwick could be on his way to the Leicester Tigers although it is expected the former England international will remain with the national side until the end of the 2020 Six Nations.

Both Jones and assistant coach John Mitchell are contracted up until the summer of 2021.
