Northampton Saints' Dylan Hartley has been confirmed as England captain for the forthcoming Six Nations tournament.

Hartley will continue as skipper for the Grand Slam defence despite being sent off for striking Sean O'Brien during Northampton's defeat by Leinster in December, an offence that resulted in a six-week suspension.

Under his captaincy, England went unbeaten for an entire calendar year last year.
