Alex Payne and O2 Inside Line are back to look ahead to the start of the Six Nations with France vs England on Saturday. Both teams have now named their teams, which include uncapped players for both sides, including at flyhalf for France.*
England included youngsters George Ford, Jack Nowell, Luther Burrell and Anthony Watson in their squad, who according to coach Stuart Lancaster, have impressed at club level and in training.
“We are excited about the players we are taking to Paris and what a great place to open our RBS 6 Nations campaign against a French team who will be massively motivated, especially after the last two games between us,” Lancaster said.
In this week’s O2 Inside Line fans get an exclusive look into life in the England camp, with Dylan Hartley and Brad Barritt starting off with their Player Analysis and their views on the French team.
Some of the funniest things to happen on a rugby pitch are then discussed, we see some of the team training and then operations manager Tom Stokes runs through what his job entails.
