On this week’s RFU Podcast we hear from England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster ahead of the three-Test series against New Zealand, including his thoughts on the  inclusion of Danny Cipriani and James Haskell’s in the touring squad.

We also speak to Worcester Warriors fullback Chris Pennell, who talks about the prospect of donning the red rose for the first time.

“I’m over the moon, hugely excited, grateful for opportunity and looking forward to getting stuck in,” he said.

“We know we have got an opportunity for this first Test now, this group of players, to really go out and lay down a marker for the other games.”
