New England captain Martin Corry is confident that coach Andy Robinson is on the brink of turning the reigning world champions into winners again.
With Jason Robinson out injured, coach Robinson has opted for the Leicester number eight to skipper England for next Saturday's RBS 6 Nations match against Italy at Twickenham.
Corry is adamant he will merely continue what he perceives to be the good work that has so far been carried out by the two Robinsons, as England continue to rebuild after winning the World Cup.
Although England have started this Six Nations campaign with defeats to Wales, France and Ireland, Corry told BBC Radio 5 Live: ''I think he [Andy Robinson] is doing really well.
''He has had a hard time in terms of injuries, but the mood in the camp is excellent, and it is a camp everyone is honoured and happy to be a part of.
''The only problem is due to the massive shake up and the changes in the side, the little things that turn close losses into victories aren't quite there yet.
''But I'm positive in a short space of time that will come.
''With everything that has been going on, I think Jason Robinson has done a fantastic job instilling a great team spirit into the squad, and I've every confidence in what Andy and the rest of the coaches are doing behind the scenes.
''I'll just be looking to make sure everything keeps moving in the same direction. At the minute I've got this appointment for the next couple of games, so there's no need for drastic changes.
''It's just to make sure all the hard work that has been done doesn't get wasted.''
As head coach Stuart Lancaster polishes the axe he will soon wield over his World Cup training squad, Exeter Chiefs coach Rob Baxter has backed Jack Nowell, Henry Slade and Luke Cowan-Dickie to be given a stay of execution.
Italy Under-20s held off a late Samoa blitz to retain their place in the World Rugby U20 Championship on Saturday and head coach Alessandro Troncon believes the experience will have served as a valuable lesson for his young troops.
