England might be two wins away from on a first RBS 6 Nations Grand Slam in eight years but scrum-half Ben Youngs insists they have plenty of room for improvement.
The Leicester Tigers starlet has been an ever-present in England’s impressive start and won his tenth cap in the crucial 17-9 win over France .
Despite Youngs being just 21-years-old he admitted dishing out some harsh words in the Twickenham dressing room at half-time of the France clash.
And he believes their desire to keep getting better bodes well for a bright future with games to come against Scotland and Ireland and then the World Cup later in the year.
“We’ll go and review everything that happened out there and work really hard on it with the coaching staff,” said Youngs.
“It shows that this team is moving in a really good direction, because a lot of the guys still feel a bit frustrated and a bit disappointed.
“We demand high standards and we know there were areas of our game that let us down out there – we should have come away with more points, we simply weren’t clinical enough at times against France .
“But one of the most pleasing things is that against South Africa we got bullied, whereas the French picked a side to bully us but we still came out on top.
“That means we’re learning very quickly as a squad – we’re starting to be able to rely on different game plans and different styles of rugby when necessary.
“Guys are bringing their experiences from losses and turning them into victories, which is the main thing for us.”
