England captain Chris Robshaw (r) is "devastated" after his side ended up being RBS 6 Nations runners-up for the fourth year in a row at the weekend.

"I am devastated," Robshaw said.

"Once again to fall short on points is tough to take. We went out and gave it our all but unfortunately came up short again."

The back-rower was at pains to point out that it was not the failure to get the 26-point victory they needed against France that was the most costly factor in their doomed bid for the northern hemisphere crown.

"It didn't come down to this game," he added. "If we'd been more clinical and taken more points against Scotland and been better defensively against Italy it would have been different."
