- ‘Once you have that basis of honesty you can move on’
- Saracens to begin Championship at Cornish Pirates on 6 March
Billy Vunipola has said he must shoulder his share of the blame as England examine their desperate start to the Six Nations, admitting honest discussions are needed if they are to stay in the hunt for the title.
Vunipola was far from alone in underperforming against Scotland last Saturday but his woes were compounded with a 23rd-minute yellow card for a high tackle. Both Jones and Vunipola have said the No 8 rediscovered his best form in the autumn but by his own admission he failed to make a dent in the resolute Scotland defence, carrying the ball just three times for a total of 10 metres.
