The Rugby world has been warned by Eddie Jones who said that his England players will not be hesitant to rest on their laurels after getting a Six Nations Grand Slam since 2003.
The Australian-born coach already anticipates touring his native country in June, after tasting success in Europe’s premier just 6 months after he replaced Stuart Lancaster.
The win against France last weekend was the 5th out of 5 matches and has lifted the gloom that the team has created of late after they exited the 2015 World Cup under embarrassment considering they were the hosts.
Jones spoke to England Rugby podcast in which he said that you’ve just got to keep moving forward. There are things you need to look back to learn from but definitely keep looking forward and see how we can improve.
“Our target is to go to Australia and win the series. We’ll need to be tactically different but if we keep improving we’ll be in a good position to really take Australia on.
“They want to see a good rugby series and a resurgent England will give them that. Australia is a country where sport is so heavily part of the culture … they want their national team playing against strong teams, and that’s what they’re going to get with this England side.”
The former Japan and Wallabies coach has turned the tables round for England using almost the same team that Lancaster led for 4 years with no trophy.
Jones said that he is proud of the players and their hard work for the past 8 or 9 weeks.
