Robshaw’s England stint extended

Chris Robshaw will captain England for the remainder of the Six Nations.

Robshaw had initially been installed for the first two Tests but has impressed coach Stuart Lancaster. ‘Chris has stepped into the role well and led a new team in two tough away fixtures,’ Lancaster said in a statement.

‘He is one of many leaders we could have chosen against Scotland and Italy but he has shown on and off the field the qualities required to captain a side. We feel it is right to make a call now that Chris will lead England for the rest of the Six Nations.’

Robshaw has been at the helm for victories over Scotland and England.
