The Harlequins flanker Chris Robshaw has been retained as England rugby captain for their four November internationals at Twickenham, which wind up with a test against the All Blacks.

Head coach Stuart Lancaster appointed Robshaw captain at the start of the year, despite only one previous appearance for England, and he led them to second place in the Six Nations championship, then on the tour of South Africa.
