At the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations, England Rugby called upon fans to get behind their team during away games against Italy and Scotland by tweeting messages of support using #carrythemhome.

As well as sending the team their motivational messages via Twitter, a selection of 40 lucky England fans would then be chosen to have their words printed on the Twickenham tunnel wall as the players run out during the RBS 6 Nations home games. With thousands of messages received, the 40 winners have now been selected!

The winners (listed below) will see their motivational Tweets adorned on the Twickenham tunnel wall to inspire the team as they run out to face Ireland on Saturday, March 22. In addition, one of the chosen 40 is set to receive the ultimate money can’t buy prize.

The most inspiring tweet, chosen by Chris Robshaw, goes to David Barrett (@barrettstweets) for “One Nation, One team, one outcome. Together we are strong #CarryThemHome”. David's prize includes attending a training session at Pennyhill Park this week, where he will deliver his message in person to the team, and  two tickets to the game.

If your tweet hasn’t been chosen this time, then don’t worry, there is still another chance to enter. Simply keep your tweets coming in until Monday March 3 and we’ll select another 40 including one ultimate prize winner ahead of England’s final home match against Wales on March 9.

Before the roar of the crowd, the national anthems, or that first blow of the whistle, your words will inspire England. Be the First Contact.

To be in with a chance, simply tweet your motivational messages using #carrythemhome during the 2014 RBS 6 Nations.
