Robshaw Named England Captain for Rest of 6 Nations Tournament

Feb. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Chris Robshaw, who was England’s captain as the team won its first two matches in rugby’s 6 Nations tournament, will keep the title for the remainder of the event, coach Stuart Lancaster said.

The flanker led the team to victories in Scotland and Italy, and will be in charge during the home match against Wales on Feb. 25, England’s Rugby Football Union said today in an e-mailed statement.

“Chris has stepped into the role well and led a new team in two tough away fixtures,” Lancaster said. “He is one of many leaders we could have chosen against Scotland and Italy but he has shown on and off the field the qualities required to captain a side.”

The 25-year-old had played once for England before taking over as captain as the start of the tournament. The squad hosts Wales, which is also undefeated, at Twickenham in London.

Robshaw took over as captain for the retired Lewis Moody.
