Allison Brown: Have you had a good camp while you have been out here?
◤ Eddie Jones: Browns is an excellent place for a camp. We have enjoyed the facilities. Enjoyed the services of the staff. The weather was great. So it is certainly being one of the best camps we have had.
A: Perfect. That's very nice to hear. You have been here. This is 6th time since October 2016. Why do you choose to come back?
◤ E: All the facilities are good. That's one top shop which is important for players on a Camp because they don't have to get on a bus so we can train hard and recover well and the food here is fantastic. So it's a very relaxing setting. So the players not only have to focus on their work but also relaxing in an appropriate way.
A: So that will be the main benefit of having everything on-site. You would say?
◤ E: Yes, definitively. When you wanna do an intensive camp, when you have the players for a short period of time, one of the things that drain energy is getting on buses and the beauty of being at Browns is that you don't have to get on a bus.
A: You have obviously seen a lot of improvements since the 1st time here. You were here with Saracens the 1st time which is a while back. What would you say will be the biggest improvement you have seen at Browns over the years?
◤ E: I think the biggest improvement is having two fields. There is a smaller field, which we found very useful through our organization and staff and then when we wanna train a little bit harder we go on the bigger field. And having those two fields allow us that flexibility. Another great thing is the gym that has been extended and the gym functions in a 1st class manner. We also got the use of indoor areas such as the 3G where we put mats on which allow us to do basically everything within walking distance of 30 meters.
A: You seem to have a lot of inspiration from coaches of different sports. What would you say it would be an advantage for coaches of other sports to use Browns as a Training Camp destination?
◤ E: I think firstly the warm weather. You know that’s always easier for players to train in warm weather and just the fact you got everything on-site and you can do everything which allows your players full recovery. That’s one of the things players coming here, so they can train hard and they can recover very well because there’s not only cold, it’s hot, and they are able to get a massage at any time because everything is very close.
A: So would you recommend Browns to other coaches?
◤ E: I recommend Browns very highly to any team sport and even individual sports I think it would be very useful.
