Danny Care has nothing but praise for Eddie Jones
Thursday, September 14, 2017
Danny Care joined Alan Brazil and Ray Wilkins in the talkSPORT studios on Thursday morning and spoke about the huge impact Eddie Jones has had on England.
England have made huge strides under the New Zealander, winning 19 out of 20 matches since he replaced Stuart Lancaster as head coach in 2016 to rise up the world rankings.
Jones has made it clear from the outset his aim is to topple the mighty All Blacks and lead the Red Rose to World Cup glory and Care says it is his bullish and confident approach which is driving the squad on to greater things.
The 30-year-old scrum-half said: “He has been great for us, great for me. I’ve really enjoyed working with him.
“He is honest. That is his biggest thing. If you are not playing well enough, he will tell you. If there are things you need to work in to get in the team, he will tell you, and as a player that is all you can ask for.
“I remember the first day he came in and spoke to us as a group he said ‘I think this team can be the best team in the world and I think you win the World Cup in Japan’ and a few of us were like ‘brilliant’. That is what you want to hear and every training session we have, every meeting we have, every game we play, we try and get one step closer to the goal of being the best team in the world.”
Care also explained why his wife was to blame for missing his beloved Liverpool’s Champions League return Wednesday night, spoke about growing up with England football star Jamie Vardy, and had some advice for Calum Best – Listen to the interview IN FULL above!
