Now in Brentford, having spent the previous two decades at the Select Car Leasing (Madejski) Stadium, the club are hoping to attract a wider crowd and push to the top of the top-flight.

โ€œAnother packed Twickenham will witness the start of the next chapter of English rugby in one of the most keenly contested tournaments in the world.

โ€œThere is no doubt that this England team shares the supportersโ€™ sense of eager anticipation.

โ€œTo a man, the players are determined to play with the commitment, fight and desire that is at the very heart of representing England, the sort of passion that our tremendous supporters rightly expect.โ€
