JAMIE GEORGE warns that England ‘want to take teams apart’ in this year’s Six Nations.
The holders start the defence of their title against Scotland on Saturday in an empty Twickenham.
Despite winning last year’s Six Nations trophy, England did not score as many points or tries as Ireland and France.
That led to criticism from some quarters over Eddie Jones’ tactics.
But Saracens hooker George, who has 54 caps for Red Rose, says England are ready to go up another level.
He told Rugby Union Weekly: “We are up there with the best in the world.
“But we want to be able to take teams apart with our attack.
“We want to attack slightly differently to what has been seen before.
“We are doing walkthroughs, knowing our game plan, and understanding who needs to be where to maximise our attacking opportunities.
“It’s really exciting and hopefully we are able to put that into place when we come onto the field.
