Exeter Chiefs' wing Jack Nowell says that it will be a "dream" to play for England having been selected in the team for their game against France.

The back three player, who featured for the under-20s last season, has made a remarkable rise through the ranks and has consistently impressed for his club.

Nowell's performances in the Heineken Cup double-header against defending champions Toulon earned him widespread recognition and the 20-year-old will have an opportunity to show it on the biggest stage.

He said: "It's been very special. It was one of my dreams growing up as a kid and for it to actually happen, I've had to pinch myself a couple of times. The excitement is ridiculous and I'm enjoying every minute of it.

"It felt like last month we were out in France playing in the Junior World Cup and for us to already be halfway through the season and be in the Six Nations squad, it has come so fast.

"For me, the big thing is that they told me I've been picked because of what I've been doing at Exeter, so coming into the camp I didn't want to change and I just wanted to play my game."

Despite being an inexperienced player in the squad, Nowell says that it has been easy to adapt to his new surroundings with the help of the senior pros.

"They've been in my position, when they were starting out they were also playing with bigger names, but for me I've watched these guys growing up and they're top quality players," he added.

"They've made me feel very welcome - like another team member - so at training they don't treat me any differently."
