Ben Youngs says England will look out for each other to avoid off-field issues

England will embrace a method of drinking to ensure there isn’t any repeat of those controversies that blighted the overseas World Cup.
Eddie Jones’ squad have touched down in Miyazaki, the setting for a coaching camp at the place where they could step up preparations to their championship opener.
Jones has allowed alcohol to be consumed throughout his reign as head coach and the policy will stay in place within the effort to lift the Webb Ellis Trophy.
At the 2011 World Cup, Martin Johnson’s England became embroiled in a set of events that jeopardized their pursuit of their game’s greatest trophy and stained Twickenham’s standing.
Ben Youngs was present as a senior player, has been involved in forming the strategy eight years back in New Zealand.
“We’ve addressed the elephant in the room and spoken about how off-field stuff could attract unnecessary attention which affects momentum,” that the Leicester scrum-half mentioned.
“Sometimes guys will get it wrong but in this class I think guys will keep an eye out to each other. We would like to see Japan and also have time.
“If guys want a drink, that is no issue. The guys make sure the ideal decision is made by everyone and will police each other.
“If you’re putting the team first then that is the major thing. If boys want to have a drink I will be surprised.
“You’ve only got to be clever adults. Youand you’re representing the nation and each other, respectively.
“What you do has a knock-on impact on your team-mates and I feel that this team is mature enough to make the right decisions. Hopefully we will not face any of those issues.”
After being exposed to a five-hour delay on arrival on account of the fallout from Typhoon Faxai to Tokyo on Monday, England appreciated transit to the island of Kyushu where Miyazaki is situated.
A crowd gathered at the airport to greet the players as they funnelled into the team bus and on through arrivals.
Owen Farrell and his team-mates are told in no uncertain terms by Jones what the coming weeks may mean to the nation.
“Eddie was a part of Australia when they lost from the 2003 final and he’s been a part of South Africa when he won it. He said’boys you have got the chance to make and be part of something that will be the most awesome thing of your own life’,” he explained.
“You saw the cricket did using the World Cup, the football World Cup too. He has made us aware of that.
“In relation to rugby, you just have the chance each time you’re available to inspire a country and do something very special and I think this group is surely excited by that.”
