England look to defend Six Nations title after World Cup horror-show

England will look to defend their Six Nations crown in February while also putting behind them their World Cup nightmare.

The team were widely criticised for their off-the-pitch behaviour in New Zealand during September and October, while their performances after they crossed the white line were also below par.

Their next challenge will be to lift themselves for the Six Nations, which gets underway on Saturday February 4th.

Rugby fans booking Edinburgh hotels can see England take on Scotland at Murrayfield on this date, while their Twickenham home will host matches against Wales and Ireland.

Weekends away in Rome and Paris will give supporters a chance to follow Stuart Lancaster's men in Europe.

England centre Shontayne Hape said that he expects interim coach Lancaster to bring in new, exciting players for the tournament, and showcase the young talent in the country.

"The only way they learn is if you play them. I am a big believer in chucking young players in there to see what they can do," he added.
