Look out France! here comes the tattoo'd street-fighting Cousin Jack!

The sports press are full of stories looking ahead to the fisrt round of Six Nations games with England travelling to the Stade Francais in Paris to play France in the opening game this coming Saturday - and top of those stories for the tiny fishing port of Newlyn is that one of its sons is predicted by some sports pundits to run out on to the pitch wearing an England senior team shirt for the first time!

look out France - some of the daily papers have branded Jack the 'streetfighter' or 'tattoo'd terror'! 

Exeter Chief's LV Player of the Year and BBC TV's SW Sports personality of the Year, winger Jack Nowell has already impressed after an outstanding game in last year's first ever Junior Rugby World cup where he scored a crucial try.

Here's what Steve James in today's Telegraph says:
Watson returned to England’s base on Sunday night hoping to impress in training ahead of selection for the France match in Paris on Saturday. England will likely choose Jack Nowell on the right wing and Jonny May on the left, with Chris Ashton omitted, but that can change.
Here's to the game on Saturday!
