France centre Yannick Jauzion is determined to take his chance in Saturday's RBS 6 Nations showdown and put "arrogant" England in their place.

Jauzion, 32, has suffered from Marc Lievremont's rotation policy and will make his first start of the campaign at Twickenham after being recalled at inside centre for 'Le Crunch'.

"There is always a huge rivalry between us, especially this year because the English are at their best in all departments," the Toulouse star is quoted as saying on Planet Rugby. "They are a little arrogant before and during matches and that is why we respect them."

He added: "For me this is the chance to properly begin my Six Nations in very difficult circumstances. It is vital to seize a chance when it presents itself.

"I am focusing on what I can do for the team and bring to it. Of course I need to prove something, but without making it a one-man show."
