Jones: England will get better

Head coach eyes further improvements

England head coach Eddie Jones expects his side to further improve following their Grand Slam triumph.

At the Stade de France on Saturday evening, England secured their first Six Nations clean sweep in 13 years by beating France 31-21.

Jones, however, is looking forward to his team becoming an even more formidable outfit.

"The great thing is that the best is still ahead of us," the Australian told the BBC. "We are only going to get better."

The French produced a strong performance in Paris but the visitors held firm to wrap up a fine campaign in style.

"I am very proud of the boys," Jones said.

"We weren't at our best today, but we battled through and really deserved the victory. It is a great achievement by the team.

"I always had confidence in the team."

Jones picked out captain Dylan Hartley and the senior coaching staff for specific praise.

"He (Hartley) has been fantastic; he has done a really good job. The nucleus of the team has been very strong.

"The two assistant coaches have also done a fantastic job, Paul Gustard with his defence and Steve Borthwick with his set-piece work."

England finished at the top of the table on maximum points, with Wales second, Ireland third, Scotland fourth and France fifth, whilst the wooden spoon went to Italy.
