Cape Town - England coach Eddie Jones is already hard at work planning for their three-Test series against the Springboks in June.

Jones is in South Africa to familiarise himself with the venues at which his side will do battle against the Springboks.

Jones visited Ellis Park in Johannesburg on Monday and was shown around the stadium by Lions CEO Rudolf Straeuli.

According to Netwerk24, Jones wanted to familiarise himself with the visitors' change room and coaches box.

He also inspected the demarcation area for the substitutes and the medical facilities.  

Jones will visit the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein on Wednesday and Newlands in Cape Town on Thursday.

The first Test between South Africa and England is scheduled for Johannesburg on June 9, followed by Tests in Bloemfontein (June 16) and Cape Town (June 23).
