England Rugby focused on clean sweep of wins
Here we are. The final game of this truly amazing Old Mutual Wealth Series for England Rugby. The focus from day one going into this series was to achieve a clean sweep of wins against the quartet of southern hemisphere teams. A win against Australia on tomorrow would secure that and the world of rugby will have no choice but to stand up and take notice of Eddie Jones’ England team.
You get the sense that this squad feel they haven’t reached their full potential yet, with their hunger and desire to strive for more clearly evident on the pitch. Last Saturday’s battle against Argentina was a tough test for this team, but they came through in the end after an impressive 27-14 display.
Fresh in our minds going into this weekend’s game is the memorable whitewash tour of Australia in the summer. What can we say that hasn’t already been said, it still makes us smile watching back the three game series and how dominate the team was. Their no fear attitude and willingness to improve was a key factor. A lot will be said about the summer tour this weekend but Eddie Jones is very good at playing down past performances and moving forward. Australia will want revenge and England will be ready for that. The team has been announced and you can see who will line up here.
We want to say a huge thank you to every single one of you for your amazing #WearTheRose support the last few weeks. We’ve had so much fun and laughter in the O2 blueroom. If you haven’t yet experienced this, then make sure you pop in pre-match on Saturday to get your free pint and pasty. We will also have a Q&A with 3 of the England Rugby players after the match which you won’t want to miss so make sure you head back to the O2 blueroom after the game.
You can follow all the action on Twitter, Instagram and if you’re a keen Snapchat fan head over to O2UK. Enjoy the game and let’s hope it’s a 100% win record to end a truly remarkable 2016 for England Rugby.
