Oh and let us not forget the splendid effort of our England Rugby Ladies, who were crowned champions of Europe at the European Championships in Madrid.  England Women Champions of Europe

Nike have released information on the new England Rugby kit for the 2007-onwards season.

A new red away jersey is also being introduced for the first time.   New England Nike Rugby Kit
