Clive Woodward Makes Absolutely Ludicrous England Claim

Really?

Former England head coach Clive Woodward reckons England will win this year’s Six Nations. But not only that – he reckons they will automatically become favourites to win the Rugby World Cup in Japan if they do.

Writing in his MailOnline column, Woodward has predicted that England will be crowned champions, Ireland will finish second and Wales will secure a third-place finish at this year’s Six Nations.

This is despite the fact that England struggled for much of 2018, and face Ireland at the Aviva Stadium in their opening game where the men in green haven’t lost in 11 games (last losing to New Zealand back in 2016).

“If England get the mindset right and play an attacking style, there is no reason why they can’t win (the Six Nations).” Woodward writes

“And that would make them favourites for the World Cup, especially if they can roll Ireland in Dublin.”

“That is how big the opener is.”

Even if England do end up winning the Six Nations, has Woodward forgotten about the lads down south and a certain team that tends to wear All Black?
