BBC Sport - Kieran Brookes: Newcastle prop buoyed by England form

Brookes buoyed by England form

Newcastle prop Kieran Brookes tells BBC Look North he can put his England exploits to good use on his return to the Falcons' ranks.

The 24-year-old tighthead was named in Stuart Lancaster's squad for the autumn internationals, and featured in all four matches against New Zealand, South Africa, Samoa and Australia.

Now back with the Falcons, Brookes is keen to impart some of that knowledge and experience throughout the squad, starting with the visit of Stade Francais on Friday.
