England To Get Hartley Back

All eyes are on the England rugby team after their feat in the Six Nations win.

Indeed, last year did not end well for this team, which lost out to Australia in the World cup tournament. With a new coach and a resurgent attitude the team started off the New Year which showed the results already. It could be a coincidence that Dylan Hartley, who captained for the team in the first Grand Slam is set to return to the team again after a span of thirteen years.

He is in full training now in order to get back in shape after he suffered a concussion when he played the Grand Slam decider match against France. The match that took place in March was a successful one. Now the hooker might be taken up in Northampton who would be playing against Gloucester. The match would be part of the Premiership that is scheduled for Saturday. With having completed the return to play protocols he has proven to be fit for playing again. It would certainly be a good boost for the England team if Hartley is able to perform like his old self again.

He had been a big part of the Grand Slam win earlier this year. Hence, if he is ready to take the team to the next level, it would certainly bolster the confidence of the team as they take off this summer to face Australia.
Eddie Jones is the new head coach for England. He would like to observe the fitness levels of Hartley before he takes the next decision for him to captain the upcoming tour. The tree Test series that is coming up might be captained by Hartley if he proves his old levels and skills again. It would surely showcase in the upcoming weekend match which fans eagerly await.
