Jackman to shine with the Rising Sun

More evidence of Bernard Jackman's growing reputation as a rugby coach as the former Ireland hooker was recently called to Paris for consultancy work with the Japan squad, who are touring Europe.

Jackman, who is currently defence coach with a Grenoble side running an impressive sixth in the French Top 14, was called in by former Wallaby coach Eddie Jones to assist with Japan's preparation for Tests against Romania and Georgia.
