London - Chris Robshaw will captain England for the internationals against four southern hemisphere nations in the next two months.

The Harlequins flanker was appointed captain by coach Stuart Lancaster before the Six Nations last season and kept it for the tour of South Africa, although he missed the third Test.

Lancaster says Robshaw has "been outstanding on and off the field."

"We are lucky to have some good leaders in the squad who I know I can work well with and count on their support," said Robshaw.

England will play Fiji, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand across November and December.

The matches are crucial to England as they look to secure a top-four seeding ahead of the pool draw for the 2015 World Cup in December.
