VoiceEngland’s final training session before their highly-anticipated semi-final against New Zealand on Saturday was slightly delayed by heavy rain.
England train in heavy rain ahead of Rugby World Cup semi-final – video
Eddie Jones’s men began training 45 minutes later than scheduled at International Stadium Yokohama after arriving behind schedule. They were due to face France at the venue in their final pool match before it was cancelled because of typhoon Hagibis.
Full-back Elliot Daly said: “I probably haven’t trained in that kind of rain for a while, it was quite fun … but the weather’s meant to be OK for tomorrow.”
George Ford returns to England’s starting line-up at No 10, with captain Owen Farrell moving to inside centre, and Henry Slade dropping to the bench for a match that could define Jones’s tenure as England coach.
