Italy were extremely unlucky when they went down 23-21 to France in Paris in round 1 as the Azzurri held an eight point lead at one stage and a late drop goal attempt by Sergio Parisse went wide.

Italy have called Robert Barbieri and the uncapped Andrea Buondonno into their squad as injury cover with Jacopo Sarto and David Odiete missing out but have made just one change to their starting line-up with Luke McLean coming in at full-back. George Biagi looks to have kept his place despite picking up a knock, although he will be monitored ahead of kick-off.

England coach Eddie Jones got off to a winning start last weekend as they ran out 15-9 winners against Scotland at Murrayfield. They will want to continue their rebuilding process with a commanding win as two comprehensive victories on the road for England will stand them in good stead for a home stretch at Twickenham against Ireland and Wales

The Red Rose have made three changes to the team we saw last week. Mako Vunipola, Courtney Lawes and Ben Youngs will be includen in the starting XV. Joe Launchbury, Joe Marler and Danny Care all drop to the replacements. Saracens starlet Maro Itoje looks likely to finally get his chance to trot out for the Red Rose this Sunday.

England have won all 21 meetings between the sides so far. Last time in Rome was a stroll in the sunshine for England, leaving the Stadio Olimpico comfortable 52-11 winners. Anyway, four of the last eight wins were decided by less than seven points.
