England coach Stuart Lancaster hints that Chris Robshaw will be handed the captaincy for the upcoming autumn schedule.

England coach Stuart Lancaster has suggested that Chris Robshaw will be given the captaincy for the upcoming autumn Tests.

The Harlequins flanker guided the side to a second-placed finish in last year's Six Nations before leading them on their summer tour of South Africa.

"Chris has done a fantastic job and there's no reason why he wouldn't continue," said Lancaster.

"I've got to see who's fit and able and there are some big games still to come. Experience has taught me to not to do things too early."

England's autumn schedule starts against Fiji at Twickenham on November 10.
