Italy to win
Posted 14:48 11th February 2012
I shall not be surprised if Italy win this one, although there would be no shame in that considering the team Italy now is...On the other hand we need to retain ball better to create some real scoring chances, we've already proved that we have a magnificent defence and now what we need is a bit of creativity from the backs to score some tries. I'd put Italy as favourites but I think their structures will come apart too easily on 60+ minutes so I'd give this as a narrow English victory.

England i hope / think will show more than a good defence in Rome .It will be a hard tough battle though and Itlay have improved on last year imho .I hope / feel that England will nick it though by 3-5 points and lets also hope its an exciting game to watch .The Scotland match wasnt great but did have alot of tension myself id like good rugby on the pitch and my tension levals lower please LOL

I am not filled with confidence by the all the management talk about defending like "Tojans". Yes they did well to keep their compsosure and not give away cheap penalties but Scotland mastermined their own downfall with some terrible decisions. We have to be far far more effecient at the breakdown and secure good ball a turn over ball. Then when we have it, not give it away so cheaply as we did last week. I would still be surprised if Italy did win but it is the first year that they have had a genuine chance. If we get good ball and if we don't have too many unforced errors we should be able to pull away in the second half but it may well not end up being our day.
