Sevens is in the spotlight in this week’s RFU Podcast and we also look at the progress of England’s Under 18s and a new chapter for an England centre.

England Sevens head coach Ben Ryan has been inspired by Team GB and London 2012 – and so have his players.

“Things have changed now,” said Ryan. “They just want to play sevens. They want to prove they’re good enough to be in a winning England side and good enough to be picked for a GB team.”

We catch up with England Under 18 head coach John Fletcher after the second game of their three-match tour to South Africa. The host side – the Baby Boks – are next up on Saturday.

Our final stop is at Welford Road where Leicester Tigers centre Anthony Allen has seen the door to international rugby reopen this summer.
