New footage proves entire England team went on all expenses paid holiday to Portugal just days before French loss
New footage proves the entire England team went on an all-expenses paid holiday to Portugal just days before their Six Nations loss to France.
Remarkably the RFU seem to have accidentally released the footage on Youtube.
The RFU said in a statement: “Go behind the scenes as Eddie and the squad prepared for the opening round of the Guinness Six Nations, new faces were welcomed into the team and the side travelled to Paris to face France.”
No mention of Portugal?
Although there is no mention of Portugal, the team are clearly seen larking about in the heat, and at one point Kyle Sinckler can be heard suggesting that he and Willi Heinz go to get an ‘ice cream’.
Is it any wonder they lost to France?
