The waiting is finally over and England are ready to launch their RBS 6 Nations campaign against France in Paris.

This week's Podcast comes from inside the England camp and we preview the big game with some of the big names lining up for Stuart Lancaster's side at the Stade de France.

We talk to all three of the new boys - Exeter Chiefs wing Jack Nowell, Northampton Saints centre Luther Burrell and Gloucester Rugby wing Jonny May.

Big Joe Marler tells us he's ready for the big test up front against Les Bleus and Billy Vunipola is ready to take on opposite number Louis Picamoles.

We also catch up with France coach Philippe Saint-Andre, Wales boss Warren Gatland, and three captains - Italy's Sergio Parisse, Ireland's Paul O'Connell and Scotland's Kelly Brown.

Before all that England Saxons are in action against Scotland A live on on Friday night at 7.30pm.

England Women's back row star Sarah Hunter previews their game and Head Coach Nick Walshe – with a Junior World Championship title under his belt – sends England's Under 20 back into action.
