Chris Robshaw speaks on impact of Eddie Jones on him and England team

Harlequins back-row and former England skipper Chris Robshaw lauded head coach Eddie Jones for the impact he created with the red rose team.

The 57-year-old took over in charge of England team from Stuart Lancaster after the 2015 World Cup debacle and has led the team to 13-match winning streak last year which included a Grand Slam victory for the first time in 13 years, maiden series victory in Australia and an unbeaten run in the autumn internationals.

Robshaw stated that the former Australian boss instilled the belief in the team which created positive vibrations among his team-mates. The Harlequins star further added that he relishes to be part of the current squad which he believes is experienced at a younger age.

"I was extremely low on confidence, on and off the pitch. He [Eddie Jones] gave me that confidence. He gave me the belief to go out there and put my performances on the pitch and with that every single player in the team grew," Robshaw was speaking on BT Sport's Rugby Tonight.

"Everyone had that belief, chest was getting little broader, shoulders were getting broader and we had the ability to redeem ourselves.

"A lot of players now are probably mid 20s but they got 30-40-50 caps. That is a huge amount of international experience.

"Guys have gone on win European championships, played in big games around the world and I think we going into a very experienced level now."
