Jonny May insists Eddie Jones has the vision to deliver England the World Cup, while mutiny threatens to break out in the French camp.
The fierce Six Nations rivals clash at International Stadium Yokohama on Saturday in a game that will decide who finishes top of Pool C with either Wales or Australia waiting in the quarter-finals.
England scrum coach Neil Hatley says Billy Vunipola and Joe Marler are in good spirits despite concerns over their fitness
“Eddie just knows how to run a programme. He drives hard standards but he’s charismatic,” Leicester wing May said.
“He’s got a personality. He’s got a ruthlessness about him. He’s very different to anyone I’ve worked with him – and that’s Eddie.
“He’s a pretty one-off character, but we all have belief in the programme he’s running because of the experience he has.
“We wouldn’t want anyone else taking us through this journey that we’re on. He’s been there and he’s done it and we buy into everything he wants us to do.
“We’ve got such a good squad and so much talent that nobody really needs to pull a rabbit out of a hat in a game or do anything other than doing their job to the best of their ability.
“If we’ve got 31 people doing that and all our management around us as well doing their job brilliantly then we have a very good chance of winning the World Cup.
“It’s not difficult for me getting up for England. You feel it building all week and at the moment I feel ready to go off like a rocket at the weekend.”
Meanwhile, Jamie George insists England have the firepower to cover for Billy Vunipola if his Saracens team-mate is ruled out against France.
Vunipola failed to appear for the second half of definitive update is expected on Tuesday, but with a quarter-final place already secured the overwhelming priority is to ensure he is fit for the knockout phase.
If Vunipola fails to pull through then Tom Curry or Mark Wilson will deputise in the back row for the Pool C finale, but his absence would still have a significant impact on England’s ball carrying.
