Tip England - Italy

England have won their first two Six Nations games and will have no problems at all getting their third. Those two England wins haven't always been convincing but Italy represent far less a threat than both France and Wales, especially away from home. So far Italy have lost to Wales and Ireland conceding 96 points. It's one heavy defeat after another for the Italians who are lucky to be in this tournament. Last season saw England gradually improve during the tournament and it's likely they will do so again this year as they bid for a second straight Grand Slam. Italy can frustrate teams at times but it's their fans who get that feeling most and they lost 63-10 to Wales last time out. Go for England to win this match on a -42 handicap with England not playing a full strength line-up. 

Key points England - Italy

  • England have won all 22 previous internationals against Italy.

  • Italy have only one one away game against a top nation in the past nine years

  • Italy have lost 74 of 87 Six Nations games

Conclusion England - Italy

England will have no problems getting a third straight win in this year's championship. Go for them to beat the disappointing Italians on a -42 handicap.
