Eddie Jones has overseen a successful November window which saw England defeat South Africa, Japan and Australia while they suffered a narrow one-point defeat to world champions New Zealand.
After a disappointing Six Nations and a series loss to South Africa during the summer, the improvement in results will come as a welcome relief to Jones who must have been feeling the pressure entering the November window.
One of the most pleasing aspects of this month must have been the number of fringe players who got opportunities due to the chronic injury list which has engulfed this England squad.
With many of those players set to return ahead of the Six Nations, England will be expected to put in a much-improved showing than their 2018 effort.
Their opening match of the 2019 Six Nations? A trip to Dublin to take on Ireland.
And Jones can’t wait.
“We want to play them tomorrow!”

After Ireland’s humbling of England to win the Grand Slam at Twickenham in March, you can expect Jones to get his players pumped up for this one with revenge very much being on the cards.
