Armitage to show he means business

Steffon Armitage is determined to prove he belongs on the Test stage after returning to the England team for Saturday’s showdown with Argentina at Old Trafford.

Armitage, the dynamic London Irish flanker, made a disappointing international debut in England’s laboured RBS 6 Nations victory over Italy and did not feature again in the tournament.

"I don’t think I showed what I can really do in the game against Italy," said Armitage.

"It wasn’t a great experience for me, but now I know what international level is like and I am hoping to show against Argentina what I can do."
