Former Blaydon RFC, RGS Newcastle and Northumbria University flanker Paul Gustard has been named as England’s new defence coach


Paul joins new head coach Eddie Jones’ management team from Saracens, who were 38-3 winners in Newcastle earlier this month.

Son of ex-Blaydon and Gosforth great Steve Gustard, Paul was educated at Royal Grammar School Newcastle, helping the Jesmond institution to the National Schools Cup final at Twickenham before forming part of a successful Northumbria University side at student level.

A Durham County Cup winner during his time at Blaydon RFC, Gustard moved to the East Midlands for his professional career as a Premiership and European champion with Leicester Tigers.
