Harlequins confirmed today (23rd May) that Chris Brooker is leaving the club to join Worcester Warriors.
Having led England to away wins over Scotland and Italy, Harlequins' Robshaw will next skipper the side against Wales at Twickenham Stadium on February 25.
England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: "Chris has stepped into the role well and led a new team in two tough away fixtures. He is one of many leaders we could have chosen against Scotland and Italy but he has shown on and off the field the qualities required to captain a side. We feel it is right to make a call now that Chris will lead England for the rest of the RBS 6 Nations."
Robshaw said: "Captaining the team against Scotland was the proudest day of my life and to get the chance again against Italy was fantastic. To do so at Twickenham would be something else and I'm thankful to the coaches for giving me that opportunity and to all the lads for helping me over the last few weeks. For now I'm just focusing on training hard and helping us get ready to play a strong Welsh team."
