Lancaster knows his hopes of landing the head coach job on a full-time basis could rest on how England perform in front of a sold-out Twickenham having enjoyed a successful campaign to date which has seen them win three away Six Nations matches for the first time in their history.
The only blot on Lancaster’s copy book was a narrow home reverse to champions-elect Wales – who will complete the Grand Slam should they beat France at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday.
And while Lancaster admits he can’t believe he is just two days away from what could be his final game in charge he is adamant his players will deliver when it matters this weekend.
“It seems like yesterday when we got together in Leeds in January and began a new journey for England Rugby,” said Lancaster, who has made no secret of his desire to take the reins permanently after the Six Nations.
“Graham [Rowntree], Andy [Farrell] and myself firmly believe in this group of players and the direction we are going.
“Saturday is another step on that road and we are looking forward to coming home to a packed Twickenham with its special atmosphere and crowd.
“Their support has been phenomenal and we hope we can do the whole nation proud again.
"David Strettle has now recovered from his injury and will replace Charlie Sharples, who gained valuable experience in Paris.
