The regime appeared to signal a shift in tactics when England, off the back of a dour draw with Scotland, attempted to go toe-to-toe with free-flowing eventual Grand Slam winners France in their final Six Nations game.
And ahead of the tour of Australasia this summer, World Cup winner Tindall insists the Red Rose faithful are about to bear witness to a brave new world.
"With Smithy [Brian Smith] he has always very been very set piece orientated but what he is trying to develop now is something extra," said Tindall.
"He is saying yes, set-pieces are important, but the majority of your good game comes from turnovers and the kick and chase so we are also going to try and have a more loose style of play.
"It is good to see some of the younger guys in there who have played well and they get there opportunity to really have a crack at top end rugby and find out what they are about and we will get some serious answers when we finish the tour.
"We have been playing very well and since 2008 our performances have been going up but we just haven't been able to carry that from tournament to the next fixture because there has been a very big gap.
"We want to play rugby so it's just that ability of doing so with some of the pressure of the result taken away and we can just concentrate on playing good rugby."
