- New head coach speaks frankly about side’s shortcomings
- England beaten in Borthwick’s opening match at Twickenham
Steve Borthwick has issued a withering assessment of the England side he inherited from Eddie Jones after making a losing start to his tenure against Scotland, insisting they “weren’t good at anything”.
England were improved in some aspects on Saturday, most notably their attacking structures. But they were defensively poor, shipping four tries, with Scotland coming back from 20-12 to claim a famous victory and establish their best winning sequence in the fixture since the 1970s.
