Heineken Cup: Chris Robshaw puts England worries to back of his mind

Robshaw focused on Heineken Cup
Chris Robshaw insists he is not thinking about the England captaincy and has all his focus on the upcoming rounds of the Heineken Cup.
The Harlequins openside flanker captained England last season to second place in the Six Nations as well as an historic victory over New Zealand at Twickenham.
But he was not selected for the successful Lions tour of Australia and there has been speculation that he will be replaced by Northampton's blindside Tom Wood as captain for the Autumn Internationals.
But Robshaw is determined to deal with the England issue as and when it arises - after crucial games for Quins against Scarlets and Clermont Auvergne over the next two weeks.
And those games have taken on an added significance after Quins' stuttering start to the domestic campaign.
Robshaw told Sky Sports: "It has always been one of those things where you address it in October or November.
"At the moment it is all about the build-up to the Heineken Cup, it is all about Harlequins and that kind of remains over the next two weeks.
"We have got a massive competition in the Heineken Cup and all our attention is on that.
"As soon as you start thinking about things in three or four weeks time I think you lose focus, especially with big teams like Scarlets and Clermont, you have got to make sure you are 100 per cent focused on the job in hand. So we will deal with that and see what happens."
