The Welsh Are Loving England's Plan To Fix Their World Cup Heartache

The Welsh Are Loving England's Plan To Fix Their World Cup Heartache

It wasn't a great campaign for England, that's hardly groundbreaking news. But at least they're being proactive about it. Whether that entails chucking money at Joe Schmidt remains to be seen but a review panel has been convened and they have some interesting ideas.

One such idea will see England look set to take an unusual approach of asking the head coaches of Wales and Australia to discuss England's failure and find out what can be done to fix their problems.

Ben Kay, a member of the five man panel, believes that it would be prudent to sound out opposition coaches, Warren Gatland and Michael Cheika, to better understand what went wrong. The 2003 World Cup winner told BT Sport:

I would suggest speaking to some people not involved with England, to the teams they were playing against, to get information from them about what they were thinking about the England team at the time and whether that gave them an advantage going into the game.

It will be interesting to see whether or not Warren Gatland would be willing to help England fix the chaos that has been left since England exited the tournament. Gatland is under contract until 2019 so his Welsh side will face England for the next four years.

Unsurprisingly, the Welsh are enjoying this idea quite a lot.
