James Haskell has revealed he thinks the current England squad is the best the country has had since winning the Rugby World Cup back in 2003.
The flanker, who played 77 times for the national side between 2007 and 2018, has admitted he is looking forward to the tournament in Japan.
“I think the World Cup is massively exciting for England,” Haskell said.
“Eddie (Jones) has left no stone unturned in pursuit of making the best team possible. I think they’ve taken training to a new level.
“I’ve had conversations with Eddie and he’s excited. I’m an England fan now and no longer a player and I’m excited to see us go on and win it.”
He added: “For me, it’s the best chance England have had since 2003, I think we’re in the best possible place to go and compete.”
