4 & 26 FE­BRU­ARY

Where London - - Where Now - www.rb­s6­na­

It’s been al­most a year-and-a-half since Eng­land hosted the 2015 Rugby World Cup. The team has a new head coach now: no-non­sense Aussie Ed­die Jones. Eng­land threw off that World Cup dis­ap­point­ment and, a few months later, won the 2016 RBS Six Na­tions tro­phy, win­ning all of their five matches. Rugby fans will look with in­ter­est to see if Eng­land can re­tain the tro­phy for the 2017 RBS Six Na­tions. This month sees the first three rounds of the tour­na­ment, with Twick­en­ham Sta­dium host­ing Eng­land’s games against France (4 Feb) and Italy (26 Feb) – ar­guably the com­pe­ti­tion’s weak­est na­tion. If you are at­tend­ing Eng­land’s home games at Twick­en­ham, make sure you take a be­hind-the-scenes Sta­dium Tour, which in­cludes a peek in­side the Eng­land dress­ing room, and a walk through the play­ers’ tun­nel.
