Heading into the 2023 Rugby World Cup, the English Rugby team's outlook was bleak. The 2023 Six Nations was a disappointment for England, which went 2-3 with losses to Ireland, France and Scotland. 

A few weeks before the World Cup, England lost to Fiji in a warm-up game.

But once in the Rugby World Cup, England turned it around and hopes to use that momentum for a strong 2024 Six Nations run. 

England went undefeated in pool play at the World Cup, then exacted revenge on Fiji with a 30-24 win in the quarterfinals. A week later, England nearly pulled off the upset of the year, before losing to eventual champion South Africa 16-15 in the semifinals.

England lasted the longest of any Six Nations squad in the 2023 Rugby World Cup and beat Argentina in the bronze game, 26-23. 

Now the question is: Can England win its first Six Nations championship since 2020 and add to its record of 29 championships?
