I am absolutely thrilled for Stuart and we have all been thoroughly impressed by his professional approach, vision and dedication to achieving the best for English rugby from the day he was appointed Interim Head Coach. Stuart is tremendously popular with the players and quickly earned their respect and trust through his honesty, humility and strong work ethic. It is to his and his coaching teams immense credit that they helped to transform the outlook and fortunes of the England squad and have instilled such a strong confidence and culture within the squad in such a short space of time.
