Jamie George is England’s form hooker, says Alistair Hargreaves

Alistair Hargreaves has backed Jamie George’s World Cup bid, claiming boss Stuart Lancaster would “make a huge mistake” if he omits the uncapped Saracens hooker. Hargreaves reckons club colleague George was the best No.2 in the Premiership last season and has no concerns over the 24-year-old’s ability to cut it on the big stage. “Jamie’s […]

George Lowe backs Jamie Roberts to hit heights at Harlequins

Harlequins centre George Lowe is desperate to hook-up with new signing Jamie Roberts, whose impending arrival he describes as a “massive coup for the club.” Lowe, now fully fit after recovering from a career-threatening neck injury suffered in 2013, stands to gain the most from playing alongside Wales and Lions star Roberts, who will check-in […]

George Furbank to make England debut versus France

A couple of surprise moves in Eddie Jones’ squad to play at the Stade de France

England change George Ford’s role for Australia showdown

Eddie Jones makes bold selection call ahead of World Cup quarter-final with the Wallabies

Let George prove he’s a starting Lion says Chuter

Jamie George is this summer’s first choice British Lions hooker-in-waiting and must be given the chance to prove it by starting for England ahead of Dylan Hartley, according to former Red Rose No.2 George Chuter. Chuter, a World Cup finalist with England in 2007, describes George as being “head and shoulders above” Hartley and insists […]

George Kruis a doubt for Six Nations opener

George Kruis is a doubt for England’s Six Nations opener against France on Saturday after picking up a knee injury in training yesterday. The Saracens lock, who was still named in Eddie Jones’ 25-man squad to prepare the clash at Twickenham, will go for a further medical assessment this morning to determine the extent of the injury. […]

Shane Williams: Jamie Cudmore case proves that concussion’s a real concern

Good on Jamie Cudmore for raising the issue of concussion again and throwing the onus of responsibility back at the clubs and those who have a duty of care for players. It’s not just about looking after players during a game, but their long-term health for the years after rugby. The game gave me everything […]

Dream Team: Jamie Gibson – Northampton flanker

1. Marcos Ayerza – There can’t have been many better looseheads than him over the last four or five years at club and Test level. No wonder the Pumas have the best pack around with him in it. 2. Dylan Hartley – I played with a lot of good hookers but Dylan’s leadership sets him […]

Jeremy Guscott column: Peak fitness has enabled George Kruis to scale new heights

George Kruis gets my vote for Player of the Year. Great players are defined by consistency of performance and what they win – and there are very few greats who win nothing. The Saracens lock is a winner, and a consistent one, having already been part of an England Grand Slam-winning side, and also a […]

Shane Williams: It was great to see George North equal my try-scoring record

That’s more like it. After the nightmare of Twickenham it was great to see Wales putting that performance to bed with a much-improved display. Wales needed that performance because the tournament could easily have finished with a whimper after the chance to win the Six Nations went against England. But instead we’ve finished with a […]
