LONDON, Jan 21 (Reuters) - England have re-appointed Chris Robshaw as England captain ahead of the Six Nations tournament, the Rugby Football Union said in a statement on Monday.
Forward Robshaw, 26, captained Stuart Lancaster's England side to second in last year's tournament and also to a surprise win over top-ranked New Zealand in December.
"There are other leaders in the squad that Stuart could have turned to so I am really honoured. I am really pleased to be asked again," Robshaw, who was won 12 caps, said in the statement.
