Dylan Hartley: Former England captain says they are ‘dark horses’ for Rugby World Cup

The England team has got what it takes to go deep in the Rugby World Cup, that’s according to former England captain Dylan Hartley.

He’s over in France for the tournament, that kicked off last week, taking part in O2’s ‘Viva La Rose’ campaign.

He joined London Live’s Sara Firth to talk about the initiative and shared his thoughts on why England fans are some of the best in the world, what sporting moments inspired and of course what he thinks England’s chances of success is.

After beating Argentina in England’s first game, they take on Japan this Sunday at 8pm.
