We're one step closer to the start of the 2022 Six Nations and we know the initial squads that will be taking to the field over the next eight weeks.

Joining Brian to discuss the latest ahead of the Six Nations and beyond is the former Scotland scrum half Rory Lawson

England opted to leave in form George Ford out of their initial squad but he looks to have found a way in due to an injury to skipper Owen Farrell. We are joined by the Telegraph's Ben Coles to discuss the latest from the England camp and ask if it would be a blessing in disguise for Farrell to miss this year's competition, to give the side a chance to learn how to cope without their most influential player.

First up for England is a trip to Murrayfield, Rory tells us why Scotland are once again feeling confident ahead of the clash and that the squad is amongst the strongest Gregor Townsend has picked in charge.

Elsewhere we run through some of the other major squad selections, we recap the latest round of European Rugby and discuss the new terrestrial TV deal for the Gallagher Premiership.
