Johnno has confirmed that Steve Borthwick will captain England in the 2010 RBS Six Nations, despite delaying the announcement and getting a few people’s hopes up.
Lewis Moody had been talked about as a potential captain, particularly as Borthwick’s place in the team is under threat from Simon Shaw and Courtney Lawes.
What do you think? Is consistency of selection the most important thing? Is Borthwick the man to lead England to a successful Six Nations campaign?
The following have also been called into the squad – currently training in Portugal this week – as cover for injured players:
Matt Mullan (Worcester Warriors)
Dan Cole (Leicester Tigers)
Dan Ward-Smith (London Wasps)
Chris Robshaw (Harlequins)
Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers)
