Hartley gives insights on Eddie Jones

Dylan Hartley reveals what it was like to be England captain under Eddie Jones

WATCH as former England captain Dylan Hartley reveals the roles and responsibilities that he undertook under the watchful eye of Eddie Jones.


The 33-year-old retired earlier in the month after missing almost a year of rugby with a persistent knee injury. He struggled to shake the injury off in time to make the World Cup with England and has now had to concede defeat in what he has described on Instagram as “a rollercoaster of a career”.

The hooker led England to a Grand Slam in 2016, the Six Nations title in 2017, and he was also part of the title-winning squad in 2011. However, reflecting on his career, Hartley described winning the Premiership in 2014 as the “best day of my rugby career no doubt”.

The thirty-three-year-old spoke about how he had to work harder than he ever had before when Jones took over as head coach.
