Jones ready for 'interesting' Six Nations, weighs in on Saracens' situation

SHOWS: LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (JANUARY 22, 2020) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

TEAM CAPTAINS POSING WITH SIX NATIONS TROPHY (LEFT TO RIGHT) FRANCE'S CHARLES OLLIVON, SCOTLAND'S STUART HOGG, ENGLAND'S OWEN FARRELL, WALES' ALUN WYN JONES, ITALY'S LUCA BIGI AND IRELAND'S JONATHAN SEXTON 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND HEAD COACH, EDDIE JONES, SAYING: "Well I think post World Cup the tournaments always have a different feel because teams come out of the World Cup in different states and they're in different status in terms of the cycle of the team.

And so you're not sure about the stability of teams. So the first couple of weeks is always quite interesting.

You find out where teams are going to go with their new coaches and maybe some new players and you get a better feel for the competition after two weeks." 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND HEAD COACH, EDDIE JONES, ON SARACENS' SITUATION, SAYING: "It's an opportunity, a massive opportunity.

Again for the players, for the Saracens players, coming to England (squad) is the best thing for them.

Do what they love doing.

What do they love doing?

Playing rugby.

Who do they love playing for?

Their club.

Or if they're not playing or their club they're playing for their country whom they love playing for.

It's the best thing for them.

And for the rest of the team it's an opportunity to even get tighter." 5.

JONES POSING WITH THE SIX NATIONS TROPHY WITH FARRELL STORY: Eddie Jones believes it will be an interesting Six Nations campaign following all the fall out from the World Cup and suggested that Saracens' players have a "massive opportunity" to play with the shackles off ahead of their curtain raiser against France in Paris next Sunday (February 2).

The England squad are set to have clear-the-air talks ahead of a warm weather training camp in Portugal and Jones said it was the 'best thing' possible to have some Sarries players in the squad.
