Sinfield reveals his next challenge after becoming England Rugby side’s coach
Kevin Sinfield, whose fundraising activities have topped £7 million, has unveiled his first challenge as England Rugby defence coach. The cross-code rugby legend has put himself on the task of urging squad boss Steve Borthwick’s eldest son to swap his Australia shirt for an England one. Steve referenced his boys and one of them wear an Aussie shirt, Sinfield told as he began his new job. We want that boy to be in an England Rugby shirt.

Positively it comes across how vital that is for us. Borthwick had previously shown the greeting he had from nine-year-old Hunter when sending him home following his choice to perhaps the biggest job in rugby.
“I walked in the door and Hunter is going towards me, he supposed. He is holding this ball in his hand and I’m thinking to myself he is going to give me this great hug”.So, one difficulty is that I missed out on my hug. The second was he was dressed in a Wallaby shirt. His mother is to blame for that! Both Borthwick and Sinfield are morality of the need to rejoin the English public with the national squad after Eddie Jones’s reign ended in a chorus of boos and disenchantment at Twickenham in November. Stuart Lancaster did hard to strengthen that link throughout his time in charge between 2012-15 but the improvement he made was undone by England bombing out of the Rugby World Cup historically early on home soil. Jones’ objective statement, on the replacement Lancaster, was less about winning hearts and minds than about Rugby World Cups. Everything else rather took a back seat. But Sinfield, who showed Lancaster had been in touch since his office, fully recognizes the significance of the nation being on the journey together. Players don’t forget wherever they come from, he stated. They don’t forget the person who was there on Tuesday and Thursday nights taking a tackle bag. They don’t forget the one who picked them up when mum and dad weren’t offered. We must remember that and thank and celebrate those people and keep helping them to be part of our game. When Steve talks, as he has, about listening to the roar at Twickenham he means much wider than that. He implies within our communities. We need more people playing the game and coming through with gates to watch the sport to help it grow up. If we can attain that rugby will get sufficient players to make sure it thrives for years and years. In the current term what England needs to do is get back to the business of winning after a year in which they lost SIX times. We all know what it’s like when everybody plays against the England Rugby side. But we’ve got to be enthusiastic about who WE are and what WE do. Sinfield agrees he is still something of a union rookie but then vows not to let that hinder him. Steve has openly invited me to confront him, he told me. It’s my job to see that the team is in the best potential place, not to sit here and nod my head. England Rugby World Cup: Sale shut down Quins attack and Farrell fiasco highlights refereeing issues Quins associate Nick Evans has been appointed as an England Rugby attack coach, but his side was easily stopped on a divisive weekend in the Premiership. Saracens and their nearest title rivals Sale expanded their lead at the top of the Premiership table with individual victories over fourth-placed Gloucester and third-placed Harlequins. Temporarily, 9th-ranked London Irish’s rebirth remained with their third win in four league matches, ending bottom side Bristol’s four-game undefeated streak. Away, Newcastle Falcons thrashed Leicester, who allowed 40 points or more for the second time in two games, while Exeter Chiefs easily beat Northampton.
