Harlequins captain Chris Robshaw is the favourite to be named England captain for the Six Nations.

Harlequins captain Chris Robshaw is expected to be named England captain for the Six Nations following Tom Wood's recent injury blow.

Wood was the favourite to take the reins for the new-look elite side until he suffered a toe injury, keeping him out of England's first two Six Nations matches.

It appears that blindside flanker Robshaw will be appointed to lead Stuart Lancaster's side, according to the Daily Mail.

England take on Scotland on February 4 for their first test in the Six Nations.
