We also celebrate the naming of eight England players in the Lions' squad facing Australia in Brisbane on Saturday morning with Alex Corbisiero, Tom Youngs and Tom Croft all starting. Head Coach Warren Gatland outlines his selections.

We look back at England's successful summer tour, which finished with a 51-26 second Test victory against Argentina, with two of the stars of the trip, Harlequins prop Joe Marler and Bath Rugby centre Kyle Eastmond.

Elsewhere, James Haskell and Tom Varndell were involved in NatWest RugbyForce last weekend. We caught the two London Wasps stars getting their hands dirty at Weybridge Vandals in Surrey.

And we look forward to the Rugby World Cup Sevens with the naming of the England Women's side in action in Moscow next week in the company of Head Coach Barry Maddocks.
