Hopefully it will be an entertaining game. Italy have improved over the years, but England should see them off easily enough.

Famous last words, eh? :smt002

Entertaining game - do you remember the last time the Italians visited Twickenham?!

Having said that I reckon I England will thrash them, taking out the frustration of a sub par 2nd half performance v Wales.

Rumoured that Manu, T’eo and Cokanasiga will all start. Eddies one trick pony, bash it up. Meh!

Don't get the Teo and Tuillagi in the centres but at least it does indicate that aren't planning to kick the ball away as much as against Wales?

Robson not starting! When will he ever be given a chance? An injury to YBY and its Ford at scrum half if the 6 - 2 split is true!
