- Full-back says players must earn goodwill
- Supporters are ‘the heartbeat of what we do’
Freddie Steward has heralded England’s first match at Twickenham since the World Cup as a chance to “draw a line in the sand”. They were booed off the field after their last home match and he hopes supporters will “erupt” when Wales visit in the Six Nations on Saturday.
England limped to their first loss to Fiji during their previous Twickenham outing in August with supporters making their frustrations clear afterwards. The disconnect continued at the World Cup when fans could be heard booing in between rousing performances against Argentina in their opening match and their semi-final defeat by South Africa.
