• 2015 captain says future of young England side is ‘very bright’
• Harlequins captain calls for English improvement in Europe
Chris Robshaw believes Eddie Jones should take England to the 2023 World Cup in France, where he expects at least two-thirds of the players who went all the way to the final in Japan still to be in contention. The disappointment felt after losing to South Africa did not compare with the dejection in 2015 after the England side Robshaw captained became the first hosts not to make the knockout stage.
“I do not know what the mood in the camp is but Eddie is the man to take it to the next World Cup,” said Robshaw at Wednesday’s launch of the European Champions Cup. “He knows how to get the best out of everyone. I have a number of friends in the squad and you could see how down they were after the final after the high of the week before.
