Six Nations Rugby: Mike Catt wants England to show ruthless streak

By Staff Reporter

Mike Catt has demanded England become more ruthless after reflecting with frustration on the missed chances that could yet cost them the Six Nations title.

Scotland were dispatched 25-13 but a mass of try-scoring opportunities were butchered in the penultimate round of a Championship that will almost certainly be decided by points difference.

"What the guys have to understand is that you only have two or three opportunities," attacking skills coach Catt (above) said ahead of England's final game against France on Saturday.

"For a ruthless side we need to make sure we convert those into points.

"It's all about us sticking to what we are doing, because it is working, and more about touching up the finishing. It's just making sure everyone is on song and everybody is playing in the moment.

"There are so many different areas why it didn't happen - the support, individual errors - so it's fixable. It's not really broken, it's just guys not implementing things."
