“We’ll be honest and up-front about it, but we’ll come through it.”
England head to the Algarve this week for a pre-tournament training camp and Jones said: “Portuguese beer will help. It’s a matter of getting the issues on the table. Time will help.
“It’s a massive opportunity. For the Saracens players, coming to England is the best thing for them.
“They love playing rugby. They love playing for their club and they love playing for England.
“For the rest of the squad it’s an opportunity to get tighter.”
