New England captain Robshaw will have support, promises Lancaster

Interim England coach Stuart Lancaster says he is not expecting Chris Robshaw to "run the show" on his own after naming the Harlequins skipper as England captain for the first two Six Nations games.

Lancaster admits Dylan Hartley and Tom Croft were also contenders for the role of skipper, but believes the 25-year-old Harlequins captain has the experience required.

The interim boss adds that Delon Armitage's suspension from the England Saxons squad, after being arrested over an assault allegation, takes the "gloss" off the Saxons' win over the Irish Wolfhounds at the weekend.
