England will benefit from Richard Wigglesworth experience during Six Nations, claims Steve Bortwick
Steve Borthwick insists the experience of Richard Wigglesworth will benefit England after the Saracens scrum-half won the race to replace the injured Ben Youngs.
Youngs has been been ruled out for the remainder of the NatWest 6 Nations and possibly the rest of the season after rupturing the MCL ligament of his left knee in Sunday's 46-15 victory over Italy.
Wigglesworth will go straight into the matchday 23 for Wales' visit to Twickenham on Saturday, most likely as cover for Danny Care from the bench, in his first England appearance since the 2015 World Cup.
