Dawson backs Mallinder for England

Former England scrum-half Matt Dawson talks of his disappointment at Martin Johnson's decision to quit his role as England manager but backs Northampton coach Jim Mallinder to succeed him.

Dawson calls Johnson's departure after three and a half years in the role a great shame and adds that the former England captain's experience would have proved invaluable in preparing for the 2015 World Cup on home soil.
