Former England captain Chris Robshaw speaks about what the future holds for him.
Robshaw conceded it’s unlikely that he’ll ever play for his country again following the rise of young flanks Tom Curry and Sam Underhill.
He told the Mirror : “They were both brilliant, potentially England’s players of the tournament. They were superb throughout the whole thing, not just the odd game.
“I’m a realist.
“I’d bite anyone’s hand off for another shot at international rugby but I think that with the back row options England now have, unfortunately they’ll go elsewhere.
“These guys are the future. Of course I’d love to have that opportunity again. You always want to play for your country, win more caps and play at Twickenham.
“But unfortunately I think that door is closed, though it won’t be for the lack of trying on my part.”
