England will have more setbacks – Eddie Jones

Eddie Jones said England will “have more setbacks” after his side’s hopes of a second straight Grand Slam and a world-record 19th Test win were ended by Ireland on Saturday, reports BBC.
Jones’ side had already retained the Six Nations title before their campaign ended with a 13-9 defeat in Dublin
The Australian said England are “14 months into a four-year project”.
“It would have been great to be Grand Slam champions and world record holders but it wasn’t our day,” he added. The defeat means England’s winning run ends on 18 Tests, level with New Zealand, who saw their series of victories also ended by the Irish, in Chicago in November.

“To win the World Cup you’ve got to win seven in a row, you’ve got to cope with that pressure,” added Jones.
“How many teams average a 90% win rate? Not many, only the All Blacks.”
