Women's Six Nations: England ready to defend title

Despite many of England Women's biggest names missing from their Six Nations squad to focus on the Sevens World Series, captain Sarah Hunter says they are ready to defend their title.

England will be aiming for their eighth successive Six Nations title when they open the tournament against Scotland on Saturday. Ireland captain Fiona Coghlan says that her team is "full of confidence" ahead of their opening match away in Wales.
