RugbyU: Japan coach Jones in hospital with suspected stroke

Japan head coach Eddie Jones has been hospitalised with signs of a minor stroke ahead of his squad's Test against the All Blacks in Tokyo on November 2, officials said Wednesday. The 53-year-old Australian complained of a headache late Tuesday when he returned to Tokyo from an inspection of the Brave Blossoms' training camp, a spokeswoman for the Japan Rugby Football Union said. "He was with the team's staff at the time and they went together to a hospital in Tokyo by taxi," Mayuko Watanabe told AFP.
