Chris Robshaw favourite to be next England captain at the Six Nations

Chris Robshaw is the favourite to replace Lewis Moody and become the next England captain according to Ladbrokes.

The Harlequins captain is a 3/1 chance to lead the national side out on the first match of the 2012 Six Nations tournament. Dylan Hartley is the second favourite at 4/1 along with fellow East Midland players Tom Croft (6/1) and Tom Wood (8/1) providing stiff competition.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “England need a fresh leader and it’s a safe bet that senior players will be overlooked after the World Cup debacle.”
