England fans are keen to see their heroes in action
England's first match since becoming world champions is a sell-out.

Tickets for the Twickenham clash against the New Zealand Barbarians on 20 December have quickly been snapped up by fans keen to get a glimpse of the World Cup winners.

But disappointed supporters will be at least be able to watch the game live on BBC television.

BBC One will screen the match, which kicks off at 1700 GMT.

Italian officials have also revealed they could switch their Six Nations game against England to a bigger venue.

The match in Rome on 15 February is due to take place at the Stadio Flaminio, which has a capacity of 24,000.

The Stadio Olimpico, which holds 80,000 fans, is being touted as a possible alternative.
