- Management team and coaching staff allowed to return home
- England’s next match is against Samoa on 7 October
England players have been instructed to stay in France during their “rest” week at the World Cup despite the fact that members of the management team and coaching staff have been allowed to return home this week.
After all-but securing their place in the quarter-finals with a bonus point win against Chile on Saturday, England have a 14-day break until their final pool match against Samoa on 7 October. As a result, the players have been given Monday and Tuesday off and, although they are not restricted to staying at England’s official base camp in Le Touquet, they will remain in France.
