After having become champion of the Six Nations 2020, England you are already thinking about your next challenge. It will be nothing more and nothing less than in the debut of the novel Autumn Nations Cup before Georgia. The coach of the selected de la rosa, Eddie jones This meeting has already begun to throb and made known the striking way it has designed to play.
Jones is known for his unorthodox ways of coaching, which led to him being one of the most successful and respected coaches in the world. Looking ahead to next week’s clash, the Australian slipped: “I remember the last time we played them with Japan before the 2015 World Cup, we played them with nine forwards and six backs.”
It was there that he recognized the tools of Los Lelos: “They have made their way into the top 15 in the world thanks to having a dominant scrum, a group of hard forwards, interesting backs and what we want with my coaching staff is to anticipate them” .
The tactic used when he was coach of the Japanese team paid off, so he put on the table the possibility of repeating it again with his current team: “We could consider doing the same again. Ollie Thorley, Ben Earl, there are several players we are dealing with. to become hybrid players. “
Finally, he left a particular example to validate his decision: “Tradition says that you have eight forwards and seven backs. When Barcelona beat Manchester United in the Champions League in 2009, they played with a false nine. There is no reason why You can’t do that in rugby and play a false 10 or a false wing. ” And he declared: “These are ideas that we take seriously and see how we can improve the team. Perhaps the Georgian game is an opportunity to play in a different way. “
