He is well up for the challenge and has already got his Rugby Kit on!
Yesterday I enjoyed the best Rugby in the 6 Nations Championship so far with Scotland playing some lovely Rugby to beat Italy and England putting on a gutsy show to defeat Ireland.
Both England and Scotland are very much a work in progress in regards to their style and application, but both coaches must be guardedly happy with the forward movement of their charges.
For England Billy Vunapola deservedly got man of the match and the young Maro Itoje who I mentioned on Friday seemed to take to international rugby as if he’d been playing it for years.
Moment of the match though belonged to Jack Nowell’s try saving tackle in the corner, it lifted England and seemed to be the final nail in the Irish team’s spirit.
Wales now beckons for England in two weeks, I can’t wait for that one. As every Rugby person will tell you, Wales have an almighty chip on their shoulder when it comes to England. They always play above themselves when they see a white shirt and having seen just how poor France are this will be England’s toughest game of the tournament.
Back to work tomorrow by car.
