The train between Newcastle and Carlisle runs parallel to Hadrian's Wall and offers a window on some of the most spectacular scenery in England. But the 60-mile Tyne Valley Line is itself a part of history, built in the 1830s during the first era of nationwide railway expansion.

Thirty-five players, led by the reappointed national captain Chris Robshaw, will arrive in the England camp between Sunday evening and Monday morning as attention switches from the Heineken Cup – or rather, what is left of the Heineken Cup – to the Six Nations, which begins in a fortnight's time. How many will be in a condition to train before the middle of next week at the earliest? Not as many as the head coach, Stuart Lancaster, would like, almost certainly.
Manu Tuilagi could yet play a role in England's Six Nations campaign. The Leicester and British Lions centre had been expected to miss the entire tournament but is targeting a return to action in the middle of next month, opening up the possibility of an unexpected return for the key fixture against Wales at Twickenham on 9 March.

Jonny Wilkinson may be famous for fulminating about the solitary moments in a sportsman’s life, but the feted fly-half’s latest reflections on whether he will retire next summer – after Saturday’s 32-20 Heineken Cup win for his club Toulon over Exeter Chiefs – were made with others in mind.
