Lineen said: "This is pretty much the 6 Nations squad now, we have an outstanding bunch of players and the camp will be geared towards playing England in Plymouth.

"We know England will be a real challenge, but there is a lot of competition for places in this side, so we will make sure everyone understands what is needed and work on the toughness we can bring to our matches.
