    Eddie Jones wants Japan to be fastest rugby team in the world

    Today 06:01 am JST

    ... Returning to Japan is a "big project," Jones said. "But I firmly believe that if we go about our business, we are 100-percent focused on being the fastest rugby team in the world, there is no reason why we can't go to the top of the world."

    Jones also said that he wants to use artificial intelligence to train his players to communicate with their eyes.

    "Gorillas don't have white in their eyes. So gorillas never know what each other are thinking. That's the difference with humans; we have white in our eyes," he said.

    "The really good players in the world are those who make quick decisions and are able to read movement through eyes. We have got to be able to train that skill. I have some ideas of how we are going to do it which might involve some artificial intelligence training," Jones added. "But we need a way to fast-track that. Because we see too many players with their heads down."

    Jones is still revered in Japan for his first stint in charge, when he led the Brave Blossoms to a historic win over South Africa at the 2015 World Cup.

    Fans want to see "a Japanese team that excites the world. And that's the team we want to create," he said.
