Worcester Warriors star Chris Pennell says he is hoping to keep his dream of an England career alive.
Despite the club being relegated last season Pennell enjoyed a memorable campaign.
He's hoping more big performances will ensure England boss Stuart Lancaster continues to take notice of him.
Former England football legend Alan Shearer will be playing golf in Derbyshire today - but he will only be completing one hole.
He is taking part in a challenge to take on 18 holes across 18 different courses all over the country.
He starts at his home course in Northumberland and finishes in Berkshire. The hole in Derbyshire will be played on the Breadsall Priory course, and he will be landing by helicopter.
It is all in aid of the Alan Shearer Foundation charity, after a similar challenge last year raised £20,000. He is taking on British entrepreneur Feisal Nahaboo in a rematch, after beating him inside 17 holes last time.

Worcestershire's Moeen Ali was the only real positive for England as they were thrashed by India in the fourth One-Day International at Edgbaston.
India strolled to the series victory, going 3-0 up with just one more game to play, as they knocked off England's total of 206 all out in just 30.3 overs, for the loss of only one wicket.
Moeen Ali earlier hit three 6s on his way to scoring 67 off 50 balls, which helped a stuttering England to a total India bettered with ease.
