There’s been a lot to say on England’s autumn nations performances, with much of it being negative. Eddie Jones has come under a lot of fire from the press and fans alike, even leading to an uncharacteristic admission from Jones that their most recent defeat was “entirely my fault”.
There is no doubt that the pool of players that England have to choose from include some of the very best in the world. You only have to look at some of the performances from Marcus Smith for Harlequins over the past 2 years to know that he should be a world-beater on the international stage. But for one reason or another, it’s just not clicking. With under a year until the 2023 World Cup starts, the side appears to be in turmoil.
Former World Cup winner and now pundit, Will Greenwood, has released a video damning the current England setup, calling it “tough to defend”.
Clearly speaking from the heart, Greenwood described the South Africa game as “one of the most soul-destroying, demoralising games of rugby I’ve ever been to, at Twickenham.”
Yesterday’s match at Twickenham was one of the toughest I’ve experienced as an England fan.
In 2022 alone, we’ve played 13 and won 5…
How do England and Eddie Jones turn this around ahead of the World Cup next year?
