At the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations, England Rugby called upon fans to get behind their team 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 had their words printed on the Twickenham tunnel wall as the players ran out to a victory over Ireland last month. And with one final home game remaining in the Championship, another 40 tweets have been selected to adorn the wall for Sunday’s clash against Wales.

The winners listed below will see their motivational tweets printed on the Twickenham tunnel wall to spur on the team as they run out to face Wales on Sunday, March 9th. In addition, one of the chosen 40 will receive the ultimate prize.

The most inspiring tweet, chosen by Dylan Hartley, was sent by Nikki Bradley: “Show the world what it means to you to wear the rose. Be proud of your achievement; inspire a nation with your performance #CarryThemHome”. Nikki's prize includes attending a training session at Pennyhill Park this week, delivering his message in person to the team and two tickets to the game on Sunday.

If your tweet hasn’t been chosen this time, then don’t worry, there is still a chance to send your messages to the England team ahead of the final Championship game against Italy on March 16th. Simply tweet your motivation messages using #carrythemhome and we’ll deliver the best straight to the team.

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.
