England captain Chris Robshaw has admitted that results will be far more important than performances at the Rugby World Cup.
The host nation have been drawn alongside Australia, Wales, Fiji and Uruguay in Pool A of the tournament, which gets underway in less than a month.
With the side's passage to the quarter-finals far from certain, Robshaw admits that there will be times when they have to grind out victories.
"It is about learning to win," the Harlequins flanker told The Telegraph. "People ask about style and how you want to perform, but it is all about winning.
"The guys [who won the World Cup in 2003] have told me that there were times when they flew past the opposition and everything fell into place, but equally there were times when they said that they just about clawed their way to victory, won matches that they could easily have lost.
"No-one remembers the way those matches were, only the result. So, you have to do what needs to be done in every situation, and that comes down to finding a way to win."
England play the second of three warm-up matches on Saturday when they take on France in Paris.
