England will be determined to get their Six Nations campaign back on course when they face Italy in the second batch of Six Nations fixtures this weekend.


Eddie Jones’ men endured a shock 11-6 defeat to Scotland last time out at Twickenham, immediately denting their hopes of defending the crown.

It was the first Scottish victory over their rivals south of the border in 38 years, and Jones must now return to the drawing board.

Italy suffered a heavy 50-10 defeat to new favourites France in Rome last weekend.

Franco Smith’s side have failed to win a Six Nations encounter since an away win over Scotland in the 2015 edition of the tournament.

England v Italy prediction

England are not out of the running after one game, let’s be clear about that, but they cannot afford another slip-up.

Jones has spoken about how England “tried to do too many things” against Scotland, despite not having adequate time in training camp to perfectly execute their new ideas.

If England can go back to basics, their raw talent cold be enough to claw back into contention, starting with a routine win over Italy.

Prediction: England win
