Steve Borthwick acknowledges that England has not been performing at the expected standard, as seen in a video.
England’s coach, Steve Borthwick, has acknowledged that they must adopt a “different approach” to improve their performance in the Six Nations tournaments. Despite being the most successful team in the history of the competition, England has only won half of their matches in the last six Championships. This includes two fifth-place finishes during Eddie Jones’ time as coach before Borthwick took over. Other nations such as Wales, France, and Ireland have all claimed the Six Nations title since England last won it in 2020. In their disappointing fourth-place finish last year, England only won two of their five matches under Borthwick’s leadership. Borthwick stated, “We need to make changes in our training and preparation to achieve the desired results.”
