After the great 34-5 victory over Italy and the subsequent coronation with the 2020 Six Nations title for England, Eddie Jones was incredibly proud both from the players and their entire staff that had been involved all the way to winning the championship.
It is the third championship won by the Australian coach in charge of La Rosa, after consecutive successes in 2016 and 2017. “I am very proud of all the players and staff,” said the head coach, adding: “They have reacted superbly to situations. changing in the last two weeks and they stayed focused on the goal of winning the Six Nations.
“We would also like to thank all of our fans. It is strange not having fans in the stadium and we know it is a difficult time for the country, but we feel their support throughout the campaign and it makes a difference. Hopefully we can continue offering more good times for our fans in the coming weeks, “said Jones, already thinking about the Autumn Nations Cup that will begin in two weeks.
From the great victory against Italy in Rome, the coach analyzed: “I’m very satisfied with the team’s response in the second half. In the first half we got lost and distracted a bit, possibly due to the pressure of the scoreboard. It was a difficult game for us, but we recovered our concentration and composure at half-time and the second half was exceptional. “
