December Touchline brings 2015 to a close, with news of the RFU’s top-tier partnership with Old Mutual Wealth, which sees Old Mutual Wealth become title partner of the England Men’s and Women’s autumn internationals from 2016. Consecutive southern hemisphere Twickenham Tests will kick off against South Africa, Fiji, Argentina and Australia, all broadcast live on Sky Sports HD.

And there’s reason to celebrate with record RFU revenues in 2014/15. Revenues exceeded £200m for the first time. Rugby investment increased 2% over the previous year, with investment in professional rugby broadly flat but rugby development investment up by 5%, due to increased spending on game development and growth initiatives.

And with Eddie Jones appointed England Head Coach on a four-year contract, starting this month (December) everyone’s looking forward to the opening RBS 6 Nations game against Scotland at Murrayfield on 6 February.
