Radio Five Live hires Dawson

World Cup winner Matt Dawson is to present a series of special rugby preview shows during the RBS Six Nations tournament on BBC Radio 5 Live.

The special programmes are in addition to reprising his role as expert summariser for all England matches. Matt will also present two special rugby editions of 5 Live's famous sporting phone-in, 606 — these and the preview shows will be available to download after broadcast online.

Starting on Thursday 31 January, top name guests will join Matt in the preview shows for a mix of news, discussion and analysis.

All home nation games will broadcast live on either Radio 5 Live or BBC 5 Live Sports Extra with former Scotland captain Gavin Hastings, former Ireland full back Hugo MacNeill and former Wales captain Robert Jones all returning for expert summariser duty for their respective nations.
