Eddie Jones insists England’s players will be fearless and ready to make history when they step on the turf at the International Stadium in Yokohama for tomorrow’s World Cup final.

England will face the South African Springboks in the Cup Final of the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan tomorrow. 

(Kick-off is at 10:43 South African time.)

Jones has told an unchanged England side to play with freedom against South Africa as they go in search of their second Rugby World Cup — 16 years after winning in Australia.

‘We will play with no fear,’ Jones insisted. ‘How fantastic is it for the young bunch of guys we have? Every sporting person out there is looking at the game. What an exciting opportunity to be themselves, to play with spirit, to play with pride and an English style.’
