The last time they succeeded was back in 2003 and then went on to win the 2003 World Cup.  Eddie Jones is confident that this England team is also capable of achieveing greatness, and he believes that the Grand Slam accolade is just the start of a new chapter for the team that only six months ago experienced a devastating world cup exit.

It wasn’t quite the finish we had last year, but France’s last stand meant that the final table standings was not fixed until the blowing of the final whistle.

We now await the home nations’ summer tours to the Southern Hemisphere where only then will we truly understand how much we have all improved since RWC 2015.   Challenge accepted!!
