Italy opted for unorthodox tactics in last year's fixture at Twickenham

Italy opted for unorthodox tactics in last year's fixture at Twickenham

"I've dug in and I've given everything I can for these last couple years", Lawes said.

"I hate sitting here because we've lost and it's another statistic but in terms of where this team can go and what we were creating, it's another step forward".

"The growth of the two franchises will take time". We were completely dominant and that's English rugby. We are sure of the road we are on. "We have to have resilience and we will". "I'm energised because I know we're making progress".

However, Italy captain Sergio Parisse says they will "fight in every single match" and are building to "something special" - and it will certainly take something special to beat England, with some bookies giving the home side lowly 12/1 odds.

"It's part of the belief that we have as a Chiefs player, as well. They are a great side".

Jones admits Youngs is nearly certainly out of England's next match, against Wales on Saturday. Eddie Jones has known nothing but success in the competition during his tenure having backed up a Grand Slam triumph with their championship defence in 2017.

"I don't think we've scrummed as well as that in the time I've been in charge of England", Jones said after his pack laid the platform for a victory of seven tries including two each for the Bath wing Ant Watson and Exeter No.8 Sam Simmonds.

Italy's Matteo Minozzi vies for the ball with England's Anthony Watson.

Ben Youngs, England's scrum-half, leaves the field on a stretcher after injuring his knee in the victory over Italy. All of them made at least one appearance in November.

England's third try came when, after sustained pressure inside the 22, Farrell gathered a pass to run through a gaping hole. It looks worth sticking with the trend and again backing more tries in the second half as the visitors will find extra space to break down Italy the longer the match goes on.

Benvenuti replied for the hosts with a fantastic try just after the 20-minute mark following a brilliant team move, but England were well in control early on.

But Watson soon had his second try. "They have lightning pace".

They were error-prone, however, and in the 52nd minute their line-out defence disintegrated to allow Simmonds to pierce through the middle and sprint over.

Italy 15 - Tries: Tommaso Benvenutti, Mattia Bellini.

With Jack Nowell also popping up for a late score and Alec Hepburn coming on to win his first cap, this was also a result to be savoured in Exeter, with Simmonds even popping up to supply the final scoring pass to his club-mate.
