They make big changes in the squad which took part in this year’s Rugby Europe Championship as the coach looks to a younger generation to push the country forward.

Santiago Santos is coach of Spain Rugby team and he said, “It’s year one of the transition and an opportunity to have new guys in the squad. It’s nearly a new squad with a lot of replacements. Maybe we kept 5 or 6 players from last year as we focus on 2023.”

Santos said, “Some older players retired and others that are young enough for the next cycle we have left at their clubs to keep their clubs happy.” we play within the rules with players who qualify for Spain. New Zealand, Scotland and few more Rugby teams all have players from around the world.

“We also have some English players whose parents came to live in Spain and they have been living in Spain since their childhood too. They develop their rugby in Spain and even though their blood is English they have lived their whole life in Spain.”

France were so devastated that they could not manufacture another scoring shot. Game closed on 44-8 with England emerging as victorious team on the closing time.

England coach Eddie Jones stated: “We weren’t happy at half time; we felt we had gone off the boil a little so I was really pleased with the second half as we shut them out … left a few scoring opportunities out there but certainly our second half was better than our first. It is a difficult game, you get points in front, your natural tendency is to get seduced by the scoreboard and you start doing things you wouldn’t normally do but we kept to our discipline. That’s the way the game is going (the kicking). If teams defend like that (with a high line) then the space is there in the back field and we have the pace. I’m sure teams will start defending us differently and that will create space in other areas.”

France coach Jacques Brunel said: “It was obviously very disappointing, especially the first half. The kicking game created pressure that we were not able to overcome. The same things happened throughout the game. We found ourselves on the line without anyone in behind and we were punished.”
