“When we were first demoted, we talked about coming back, to make sure we show everyone what we really stand for,” whore Jamie George said.

“All those conversations have taken place. Now we are in the position we are in here and we are reflecting on that time. It’s time to raise your hand and show what we really stand for.

“If you have Owen Farrell as captain, more often than not your standards will be quite high. He is everything. Everything. I’ve talked about Owen before.

‘Just look at ‘The Last Dance’. Watch Michael Jordan approach whatever it is: that final playoff game. There you will find Owen. He directs the team, coaches the team, he leads by example, he talks incredibly well. It’s the whole package.’

Having been dropped from England earlier this season, George is eager to make a statement ahead of the summer tour of Australia – admitting he has lowered his standards in the Championship season.

“There were probably times in that season, I don’t want to come across as arrogant, but you almost hit cruise control.

“You rely more on other people around you, you think things are just going to happen, the team doesn’t need me that much.

“Whatever that may be, it probably crossed my mind and I’m disappointed I let that happen. I’ll make sure that never happens again.’
