The Times has revealed the 68-year-old has voluntarily stepped away from the role, rather than being removed by the channel.

“It has been a fantastic time but I now want to concentrate on other things,” Woodward told The Times. 

“ITV were very disappointed but after the Rugby World Cup I wanted to go out on a high. I will be at Twickenham still – but this time as a spectator and fan.

“I would like to thank the ITV Sport team and my fellow panellists and co-commentators for so many great games and happy memories, and wish everyone the very best for an exciting Six Nations,” he added.

“A New Era” – Predicting Steve Borthwick’s England Squad for the 2024 Six Nations

With such a changing landscape in the England squad we decided to have a go at predicting who Steve Borthwick will name on his squad list.

We have opted for a 36-man squad, to match the same numbers from the 2023 Six Nations when Borthwick first took over the helm. Here is RUCK’s predictions for the England squad, for the 2024 Guinness Six Nations.
