Cornishman Jack Nowell has been selected in England coach Stuart Lancaster's 35-man squad for the upcoming Six Nations tournament.

The 20 year-old winger, who plays Premiership rugby with the Exeter Chiefs, joins team-mate Tom Johnson in the squad.

Nowell said he was "amazed" by the announcement, describing it as a "childhood dream come true."

Speaking to BBC South West Sport, Nowell said: "It is literally something I've wanted ever since I've been playing rugby.

"I wasn't expecting to get it but to have this news is absolutely massive for me.

"I've grown up watching England play and all the old boys like Jason Robinson and watching guys like Mike Brown playing in it for the last couple of years. To think I could get the chance to do it now is just ridiculous."

Truro-born Nowell made his senior debut for Redruth as a teenager, going on to play for the Cornish Pirates and Plymouth Albion before making the move to Sandy Park.
