Stuart Lancaster insists that England "can't wait" to face France in Paris on Saturday.

Stuart Lancaster has insisted that his England side "can't wait" to get their Six Nations campaign underway on Saturday.

England face France in Paris this weekend, and Lancaster claims that they head into the match full of confidence following a positive training camp.

"We can't wait for Saturday," the head coach told reporters. "We've had a good two weeks and all the players have pushed hard for selection."

Lancaster was also eager to praise Luther Burrell and Jack Nowell, who will make their debuts at the Stade de France.

"Congratulations to Jack and Luther who deserve their chance, as does Jonny May starting his first Six Nations game. It's also great to see Brad Barritt back with his experience and leadership in the 23, while Alex Goode will give us good cover at 15 and 10," he added.

England finished second behind Wales in last year's Six Nations.
