Eddie Jones: Six Nations should consider relegation - England coach

Eddie Jones Believes Relegation And Promotion In Six Nations Should Be Considered Eddie Jones: Six Nations should look at relegation

Head coach Jones has named a big, bulldozing backline for England's matchup with Italy.

"Every game against Scotland has extra on it", said Jones after his side scored eight tries in a 57-14 rout of Italy as a morale-lifting response to the loss in Wales a fortnight ago.

Tuilagi then burst through Italy wing Angelo Esposito's tackle and handed off center Michele Campagnaro before running in from 34m for his first England try since one against Italy in 2014. "When you lose a few games on the bounce it's hard to enjoy yourself on the training pitch because of the pressure and in turn you struggle to express yourself in the game; you start to look at yourselves a bit more".

Before the match, Tuilagi had said that one job for England's inside backs was to give recalled wing Joe Cokanasiga the ball.

England, dominating territory from the start, opened the scoring in the eighth minute when hooker Jamie George was driven over from a close-range line-out.

Italy, to their credit, were briefly level at 7-7 thanks to fly-half Tommaso Allan converting his own try.

While Cokanasiga did not score a try, he was a threat throughout for England, starting with a stunning take of a high ball and no-look offload barely a minute in.

Victory over Gregor Townsend's side could seize the title, however, and Jones revealed his players will be fired up by memories of their defeat in Edinburgh.

What is clear, however, is the depth of quality at Jones's disposal. "I probably should take it with two", he said.

Jones thinks training with the Eastern Europeans and a number of social events helped England bounce back following a miserable defeat against Wales. The lesson we've learned is to try to get better each day rather than let the negativity get on top of us. "We are so blessed to have Brad Shields and Mark Wilson who can play six, there is great competition for places for next week".

England go into their final match of the championship against Scotland on Saturday with the title still a possibility, although it is now out of their hands. "He's got great natural ability and could be one of the best players in the air in the world".

Wales will be crowned champions if they end the tournament by completing a Grand Slam against Ireland in Cardiff before England kick-off against Scotland at Twickenham on March 16.

And Jones must now decide whether to restore Henry Slade to the midfield to face Scotland after the all-out power game featuring Tuilagi outside Ben Te'o in the England midfield consigned the weak Italians to the wooden spoon for the fourth successive year, and 14th overall in the 20 seasons the Six Nations has been in existence.
