- New head coach signs five-year contract after leaving Leicester
- Borthwick: ‘I don’t think anyone thinks the timing is ideal’
England’s new head rugby coach, Steve Borthwick, says his players are “hurting” as a consequence of poor recent results under his predecessor, Eddie Jones, and has vowed to channel that pain into a strong Six Nations campaign.
The 43-year-old Borthwick was confirmed in the role at Twickenham on Monday, signing a five-year contract after leaving Leicester Tigers, with Kevin Sinfield also departing Welford Road to become England’s defence coach. Borthwick is planning to recruit the rest of his backroom team in the coming weeks.
