Jones hoping leaders come to the fore
England coach Eddie Jones has urged some of his team to prove they can be leaders in the build up to the World Cup.
The Red Rose are about to start their final preparations for the tournament in Japan, which gets under way on September 20.
England will face Wales in the opening Quilter International at Twickenham on Sunday, with head coach Jones due to name his 31-man squad for the tournament next week.
Saracens' Owen Farrell will lead the England side in Japan and, if Jones' troops lift the Webb Ellis Cup, they will be the most inexperienced side in terms of caps since South Africa in 1995 to do so.
Jones admits he would like more experience but claims some members of his squad are already starting to show they can lead by example.
He told the Will Greenwood Podcast: "There is evolution for a captain, Owen is learning his trade and he needs support from the rest of the team.
"Leadership is something which evolves, it's never just there and there's not numbers you can put on things.
"It's the spirit, it's the endeavour and the way you relate to people and that can change from day to day - but, at the moment, are we going in the right direction? Yes we are.
"These young players have got this amazing opportunity to do something special for their country, their families and for themselves, and they're all grasping that opportunity."
