England have confirmed that Chris Robshaw will captain the side for the rest of the Six Nations, with Stuart Lancaster insisting the 25 year old has what it takes to get the team on track for glory again.
Robshaw has already led England in their two proceeding matches, posting two victories under his belt as skipper.
And as the side continue to heal from controversy on and off the field at the 2011 New Zealand World Cup, Robshaw believes he can continue the successful run that England has had so far.
"Captaining the team against Scotland was the proudest day of my life and to get the chance again against Italy was fantastic," Robshaw told the BBC.
"To do so at Twickenham would be something else and I'm thankful to the coaches for giving me that opportunity and to all the lads for helping me over the last few weeks.
"For now I'm just focusing on training hard and helping us get ready to play a strong Welsh team."
Lancastar also endorsed his captain, saying that his strength in the dressing room contributed to the decision to make him captain for the entirety of the trournament.
"He is one of many leaders we could have chosen against Scotland and Italy", he said.
"But he has shown on and off the field the qualities required."
