England coach Jones has no answers for huge World Cup final defeat

England rugby players during a pre-match huddle

Jones, appointed after England's woeful first-round exit on home soil at the 2015 edition, nearly achieved his four-year plan of turning them into world champions only for South Africa to overwhelm the Red Rose brigade 32-12 in Saturday's final in Yokohama.

She received it at World Rugby's annual awards night in Tokyo, winning from a shortlist that also included fellow England internationals Katy Daley-McLean and Sarah Bern, New Zealand's Kendra Cocksedge and France's Pauline Bourdon. However, South Africa asserted their dominance in the second half with tries from wingers Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbe and ended up winning comfortably.

A difference between the South Africa Jones was involved with as their technical adviser and the team his England will face today is one of development.

He said: "We've taken a team that couldn't get out of the pool at the last World Cup and got beaten in the final, but there's all this negativity about their performance".

England have now been runners up in three World Cup finals.

On Saturday the world watched as South Africa defeated England in the final of the Rugby World Cup to be crowned 2019 world champions.

"We will be kicking stones for four years and it is hard to kick stones for four years".

Everyone's in the Team Of Us.

New Zealand playmaker Beauden Barrett, twice named the best player in the world, claimed the most points in the competition.

He averaged 19.8 points per game in 605 games with the Hornets, making three straight All-Star appearances from 2017-19. The Celtics allowed opponents to score 108.0 points per game and shoot 44.8% from the field last season.

We know we can give everything on the field because the next guy coming is only going to lift it. It really is. These people come together and they make friendships for life.

"(You have) 23 guys (in a matchday squad), if you lose a guy early, you have to be able to cover it".

He said: "England have been done and dusted in the classroom and the training field".

"We had a good chat yesterday when we did the jersey presentation for the 50th test match".

"We couldn't get a foothold in the game", the center added.

When he took over in March 2018, South Africa was ranked seventh in the world.

The 59-year-old Jones was the coach of his native Wallabies when they lost to England in the 2003 final and Sweeney said: "When you're in Eddie's position, you're going to have people sniffing around and you can imagine the story Australia would put together".

"The victory now is much bigger than '95, the platform is much greater and the opportunity is stronger than the one we had in 1995". I know what it did for us back then.
