England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster has named his squad for the 2013 QBE Internationals. He talks about the new additions and preparations in this week’s RFU Podcast.

We also speak to Backs Coach Andy Farrell following his memorable summer with the British & Irish Lions.

The England squad meets in Leeds next week to ramp up their preparations for the first QBE International against Australia at Twickenham on November 2.

While their time together is limited, Lancaster says that the squad is more experienced as a group and looking forward to getting together.

He also discusses the reasons for including new call ups Henry Trinder, Luther Burrell, Joel Tomkins and why Exeter Chiefs flanker Tom Johnson has been promoted from the Saxons.

Looking back on the Lions victory down under, Farrell believes he’s learned a lot as a coach and thinks the England players in the touring party will have also.
