England head into the Six Nations 2022 desperate to claw their way back into contention following a dismal tournament last year.


Eddie Jones' men finished fifth in 2021 after being toppled by Scotland, Wales and Ireland in convincing fashion.

They produced some much-improved form during the Autumn Internationals but this feels like a pivotal tournament for Jones' future in charge of the side.

England Six Nations 2022 prediction

England will know a lot more about their standing among the Six Nations teams after this weekend. The clash with Scotland is the biggest of their tournament.

Victory would provide a massive lift around the squad, defeat would crush any green shoots of optimism. It could be another frustrating tournament for an England side who haven't improved as much as some of their opponents.

England will finish: 4th
