- Jones wants England to evolve in 2018
- England's men, women and U20s are reigning champions
- Italy are the opponents on the opening weekend
On 4 February, England's men kick off the defence of their NatWest 6 Nations campaign with both the Red Roses and U20s also looking to retain their titles.
Ahead of the tournament which runs through February and March, here is a run through of everything you need to know.
Facts and stats
England's men are looking to create history by winning three successive Six Nations titles.
The Red Roses are looking for back-to-back Grand Slams titles for the first time since 2012, while if the U20s back up their Grand Slam victory from last season it will be the first time they have managed to do this in their history.
On their way to winning the 2017 title, England's men scored the most tries (16), and also had a number of players leading individual stats, such as Joe Launchbury (top tackler), Maro Itoje (lineout steals) as well as Mike Brown (metres gained).
Emily Scarratt was the tournament's top scorer last year as she scored 51 of the Red Roses' 217 points, while full back Danielle Waterman will look to continue her try scoring feats in the Six Nations where she has scored 25 in 26 appearances.
The U20s will hope to keep up their recent impressive record in the tournament where they have lifted the trophy on six of the last 10 occasions, with three Grand Slams during that time.

This means it is four points for a win and a team can secure an extra bonus-point if they score four tries or more, and if a team loses by fewer than seven points they secure a losing bonus-point. A draw is worth two points and if a side secures a Grand Slam by winning all five of their games, they earn an extra three points.
An England squad for the NatWest 6 Nations opener against Italy was announced on Thursday 18 January before the squad departed for a week’s training camp in Portugal three days later.
What they said
England head coach Eddie Jones: “We will need to improve if we are to hunt down our opponents and beat them. This tournament will be exciting and challenging, as we know we will play against some very strong teams."
Red Roses head coach Simon Middleton: “While it was an incredible achievement to take home a Grand Slam Championship last year, going into 2018 that counts for nothing, this is a new squad, a new challenge and we are determined to go out and win the competition once again.”
England U20 head coach Steve Bates: "We have some exciting players and a track record of producing full internationals so this is a great opportunity for fans to come out and see the future stars of England rugby."
