Northampton Saints forward Calum Clark says he's determined to tackle his bad boy image.
Clark, 23, has been called up to the England RBS 6 Nations squad, after returning to the sport after a 32 week ban for breaking the elbow of Leicester hooker Rob Hawkins in the LV= Cup final.
Clark, aware that views have been formed about him on the basis of his much-scrutinised offence, could now have the chance to show his quality on the Six Nations stage.
He told the Daily Telegraph: "I've got to make sure the press is all about me playing rugby, rather than it being talk about being banned. All I've wanted to do is to get back to playing rugby."
