Today Matt is a TV celebrity, appearing on many shows, most notably as a team captain on the popular quiz show A Question of Sport. He is also a commentator and presenter on Radio 5 Live's rugby programmes.

- Matt's Guide also includes: exclusive interviews, profiles, the national team line-ups, team tactics, match dates, venues and media coverage - there's everything the fans want to know!
In his introduction to the Guide, Daws comments: "There will be an air of expectation from the supporters - particularly those following England, France and Wales - who will view this Six Nations as an opportunity to see their country getting into the habit of winning trophies before having a tilt at the Webb Ellis Cup." And he goes on to say: "With just a year-and-a-half until the 2015 World Cup this Championship will be a vital part of preparations for the six nations competing over the next few weeks, giving this competition an added edge for players and fans alike."
Matt Dawson has also signed with Celebrity Sports as guest editor for the Matt Dawson Guide to the Rugby World Cup 2015.
