The 2020 Six Nations Championship begins this weekend with both England's men and women sides travelling to France for their opening fixtures. England's men will be hoping to build on their performance in the World Cup at the end of last year when they made it to the final only to be beaten by South Africa.

Despite having to settle for runners-up medals, England's achievements do seem to have given the sport in this country a boost especially at the grassroots level. Kevin Ashford reports.
