Mathew Tait has spoken of his eagerness to pull on an England jersey against France at Twickenham on Sunday.
Tait had a tricky debut in the 11-9 defeat to Wales at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday, and was on the receiving of some thunderous Welsh tackling.
But the Newcastle Falcons centre who turned 19 the day after the Cardiff clash, has not lost any of his enthusiasm for playing rugby at the highest level.
''I want more of that definitely,'' he told the BBC. ''Hopefully I can train hard this week and get selected for next week but we'll have to look at the video and wait and see.
''We were playing on our own 22 for a lot of the first half so it was quite difficult. I thought we defended reasonably well but we've just got to pick it up for France.''
