Chris Robshaw to lead England in 2013 Autumn Internationals

Chris Robshaw will lead England in the forthcoming November internationals, resuming his captaincy after being rested for the successful tour of Argentina, where Tom Wood was the at the helm.

"Every time you pull on that white shirt it's a privilege," said Robshaw. "It's a huge honour to be named captain and to lead your country. But I've always said it's not about who you are but what you do and I've got to make sure that I perform as a player first.

"We have some good leaders across the squad and I know we will support each other as we head into a massive game against Australia."

England face the Wallabies, Argentina and the All Blacks in consecutive weekend's in November.

I think its the right call starting him at 7 at the very least. He's in better form than Kvesic at the moment (no doubt subject to change but you can only pick on current form) and he's without a doubt the more reliable player of the two. He doesn't have the x factor of truly world class players but you know he'll do the job time and time again. With that in mind i figure it makes sense to give him the captaincy although i suspect his days are numbered.
