- Hooker promises to make amends for record defeat by France
- Steve Borthwick says side ‘a long way short’ before World Cup
Jamie George has apologised for England’s dismal record defeat by France on Saturday and pleaded with supporters to keep faith in Steve Borthwick’s rebuild. England were booed off the pitch following their biggest loss at Twickenham, with George admitting he could relate to fans who left early in their droves.
England now face the daunting task of travelling to Dublin to face Ireland, who are chasing the grand slam, on Saturday amid fears of another thrashing. Borthwick, who lamented England’s lack of power against the physically dominant French, is set to announce on Monday his squad to prepare to face Ireland – with the Sale director of rugby, Alex Sanderson, confirming George Ford is due to be included.
