Mike Catt Named Attacking Skills Coach for England Rugby Team

Mike Catt was named the England rugby team’s attacking skills coach, the Rugby Football Union said in a statement.

Catt joins Graham Rowntree and Andy Farrell on the senior staff of coach Stuart Lancaster. The 40-year-old was part of Lancaster’s staff for England’s tour of South Africa this summer.

The South African-born Catt helped England win the 2003 World Cup during his 75 appearances with the national team.

England will host Fiji, Australia, South Africa and world champion New Zealand during its autumn Test series from Nov. 10 to Dec. 1
