England's rugby team has appointed Steve Borthwick its head coach on a five-year contract.
Borthwick, 43, succeeds Eddie Jones in English rugby’s top job.
Jones was fired almost two weeks ago after presiding over England’s worst year of results since 2008, managing only five wins from 12 games.
Borthwick will take up his England role immediately, the RFU said, with Sinfield beginning work later this week.
Borthwick says he is deeply honoured to be appointed England head coach, and he is very excited by the challenge.
His first England game at the helm will be a Six Nations opener against Scotland on Feb 4th.
