A change at the top does not always bring about immediate results in top class sport, but for England it could not have worked out much better. It was plain to see from the start of the Six Nations that new head coach Eddie Jones was the right man for the job as his new look England side looked far more dynamic and fluid going forward.
However, prior to his first match in charge few would have imagined Jones would deliver such success in his first season, but thankfully his plans all came to fruition at the weekend thanks to a resounding first half performance against Wales on Saturday and a massive favour from the auld enemy, who beat France at Murrayfield on Sunday.
Ironically Scotland’s heroic win guaranteed England’s first Six Nations trophy since 2011 with a match to spare, but before he allows his players to really celebrate Jones want’s his young squad to go one further and round off a superb season by winning their first Grand Slam since 2003 against France in Paris on Saturday.
