    Kyle Eastmond felt his decision to switch codes was justified after he made his England debut in last weekend's 32-3 win over Argentina. 

    To be involved with England and pull the shirt on first time was unbelievable. Just getting out there and getting on the field was great. It is not a quick thing when you are switching codes. It has been tough but this is where I want to be and I know what I have got to do to improve myself and improve my game and become a better player.

    With the spotlight on English football after the struggles of Stuart Pearce's side in Israel, it's a daunting time to represent the country. But Adam Bate caught up with England Under-20 captain Conor Coady at St George's Park and met a youngster who can't wait to do just that at this summer's FIFA Under-20 World Cup.
    We've met up three times now and the training has been good. It's been really sharp. I can't wait. Everyone is buzzing. I think everybody just wants to get out there and play a game. We won at Under-17 level and to go and win a World Cup would be absolutely superb.

    Alex Cuthbert feels the British and Irish Lions could have been more ruthless in their win over the Combined Country XV.
    It was good to get the win but I think if we're being harsh on ourselves I think, we spoke in the changing room, that second half we weren't quite as ruthless as we could have been and we could maybe have scored a few more.
