Steve Borthwick is relishing the thought of playing in 2015, telling today's RFU.com podcast :
I'm no spring chicken but don't rule me out ! It's really exciting, the sport that's coming to this side of the world. We've got the Olympics, the Rugby World Cup and hopefully the Football World Cup, it's excellent.

Just thinking back to when I was a kid watching the '91 cup final it's definitely something that inspired me, it made me want to go on and represent my country at rugby. From a rugby players' point of view, an incentive like that will make every player want it."
