Jason Robinson believes England need one thing in order to be a serious challenger for the Rugby World Cup in 2019.
The scorer of England’s only try in the 2003 World Cup final against Australia, says leadership ran through Sir Clive Woodward’s side and says that’s the one thing Eddie Jones’ side needs to be genuine contenders
“I think one of the differences between the teams is that this team now probably doesn’t have the same leadership we did,” he said to The Rugby Paper.
“We were very lucky to have so many leaders, a lot of club captains and a lot of players who’d been around the block. It wasn’t always Martin Johnson making decisions.”
He added: “There’s no doubt in my mind they can do it (win the World Cup). There are still a few players out, like the Vunipola’s, who will add to this side.
“We know we’ve got a team that can compete with the best and beat the best. What they need now is consistency in performance and selection.”
