The Official Online RBS 6 Nations Store is open. The store has everything you need to get behind your team during the RBS 6 Nations, plus the store is now fully stocked with a much wider range of rugby merchandise.
The next fixture for last season’s RBS 6 Nations runners-up is against Australia on November 2, the first of three autumn internationals with Argentina and New Zealand also coming to town.
England suffered a setback earlier this month with the news Leicester’s Tom Croft would miss the autumn internationals and RBS 6 Nations campaign after suffering knee ligament damage.
And while the Northampton Saints flanker is determined to lead England again, he knows the unpredictable nature of the sport means no one can think too far in the future.
“I am ambitious and of course I would love to captain England again,” said Wood.
“A lot is made of the rivalry between Chris and me for the captaincy but we are mates, as competitive as each other and assume absolutely nothing.
“Look what happened to poor Tom Croft last week – out for the season with a knee injury after spending so long recovering last year from a neck injury. Cruel, so cruel. That’s why you have to just get on with it. Whatever happens with England will happen.”
