A Line-up to Tackle The RBS 6 Nations

On Saturday 27th February, the new England team will step out onto the pitch at Twickenham to face Ireland in the RBS 6 Nations.

If your place of work is as rugby-mad as ours is, you will surely have taken part in numerous in-depth discussions about coaches and assistant coaches. This week, however, talk turned to the players. With England coach, Eddie Jones, announcing the squad to take on the RBS 6 Nations, the newbies of the England team have suddenly become the most-discussed topic.

So, to make things simpler for everyone (and to give you a chance to be immensely impressive when you next go for a drink and talk sports) – here’s a quick introduction to the new lads on the team.
