This has been a bit of a topsy-turvy week for those involved in the England set-up.
They've lost a world class player in Jason Robinson and gained a new captain in Martin Corry.
Martin Corry is a well-respected member of the England side now and he's a hard man who will lead by example.
One of Martin's great strengths is that he has never given anything less than 100 per cent in anything he's done, and that's the reason he's so highly respected by players and coaches alike. I'm not surprised by his appointment at all.
Jason Robinson has had the feeling all season that opposition teams have been making sure that England don't get the best out of him.
I don't think it's fair to say that Robbo is off form, because in every game that he has played in this year's RBS 6 Nations he's done something brilliant that nobody else in the world would be capable of doing.
If I was a player, though, I wouldn't be too worried about losing Jason because it wasn't that long ago that Josh Lewsey was playing full-back for England, and he is a world class performer in that position.
England will be expecting to win their next two games and win them well. While everybody will be looking at how many points they score, I think the key thing for the England players is just to get the wins and salvage some pride and respect from the rugby world.
The next two games will give them a chance to put the record straight.
As head coach Stuart Lancaster polishes the axe he will soon wield over his World Cup training squad, Exeter Chiefs coach Rob Baxter has backed Jack Nowell, Henry Slade and Luke Cowan-Dickie to be given a stay of execution.
Italy Under-20s held off a late Samoa blitz to retain their place in the World Rugby U20 Championship on Saturday and head coach Alessandro Troncon believes the experience will have served as a valuable lesson for his young troops.
