England ‘frothing at the mouth’ to save themselves from Six Nations humiliation and smash France, reveals Jamie George


ENGLAND are “frothing at the mouth” to save themselves from total Six Nations humiliation.

Eddie Jones’ defending champs must beat undefeated France at Twickenham on Saturday to salvage some pride after defeats by Scotland and Wales.

England crashed to their worst championship finish under Jones in 2018 when they ended up fifth.

And after a week off to stew on the latest horror run, hooker Jamie George vowed the Red Rose squad are desperate to put things right.

The Saracens star, 30, said: “I know that the guys will come in frothing at the mouth to get ready.

“We were always going to have to beat France and Ireland to go and win this tournament.

“So, apart from us not being able to win the Six Nations now, nothing has changed for us.

“We’re still desperate to beat France who are one of the most dangerous teams in the tournament.

“It is hugely disappointing to have lost the games that we have. But, at the same time, we are playing against a French side who are considered one of the best in the world at the minute.”


Les Bleus have had their own issues but those have been off the pitch after a Covid crisis ruled out 11 star players and coach Fabien Galthie against Scotland last week.

Galthie was cleared of any wrong- doing over the outbreak and France have now been given the nod to carry on after that game was postponed.

And George added: “The France camp just looks like a good environment at the minute — it looks like they’re on to something.

“Some pretty big players for them, Antoine Dupont and Charles Ollivon, are playing some pretty good rugby now.

“And whenever you play against the French, you know you’re up for a real physical battle.

“They are coming to Twickenham and we’re still hurting from losing there against Scotland. We want to put on a show for the people at home.”

Dallaglio says England rugby ‘well below their best’ and Owen Farrell must be stripped of captaincy
