After being named England captain for this season’s QBE Internationals, Harlequins flanker Chris Robshaw says that you “never stop learning” in the role.

Robshaw, who has 17 caps to his name, enjoyed a rest in the summer, but is chomping at the bit to pull on the white jersey against Australia on November 2.

He said: “It’s always exciting to get back together – we’ve only had a few sessions but it’s good to catch up with the guys. There’s a good vibe in camp, we have a weekend to chill but next week we’ll ramp it up and focus on the opposition, but we can’t wait, and it’s always fun to play at Twickenham, isn’t it?”

Robshaw added: “Every time you pull on that white shirt it’s a privilege. It’s a huge honour to be named captain and to lead your country. But I’ve always said it’s not about who you are but what you do and I’ve got to make sure that I perform as a player first.
