Eddie Jones rates Joe Cokanasiga's try-scoring debut in England's win over Japan

The Bath star finished an excellent move in the second half
Eddie Jones believes Joe Cokanasiga will have a big future for England as the 21-year-old made a try-scoring debut in a come-from-behind victory over Japan on Saturday.
England went into half-time behind on the scoreboard after a ferocious start from the visitors, but ran in three second-half tries to secure a 35-15 victory that rather flattered Jones' side.
There were 11 changes to the team that nearly beat New Zealand last time out, and three debutants, and Jones was impressed with Cokanasiga despite not seeing much of the ball.
Japan, who host the World Cup next year, gave an excellent account of themselves
Asked if showed enough to suggest he has a big future for England, Jones told Sky Sports : ‘Yeah. Well I definitely think he'll score a few more of those in his career.
‘How quickly they come, we'll wait and see. But he certainly showed enough to be considered in the future.
