Te'o returns to England side

England rugby player Jack Nowell

Te'o quietly went about his business, much as he did in his first England start, against Italy a year ago.

Te'o will be making his first England appearance in almost a year after being selected at outside centre. The injury did not stop England, however, who went over again through Watson on the wing.

The match will be the first time Te'o has played since October, with the New Zealand-born rugby league convert partnering Owen Farrell in the centres.

"We're in this tournament to win it", said Jones.

"He's quick and powerful and we're pleased to have him in our squad". "So hit the line hard".

England coach Eddie Jones said in the build-up to the tournament his team wasn't the favourite because of its long list of absentees through injury and suspension.

"We want consistency [from referees] and our maul defence was penalised when theirs wasn't".

Moody, speaking on behalf of Land Rover, added: 'I can't see Italy causing any upset anywhere during the competition which is a shame because Conor O'Shea and Mike Catt are incredible coaches, ' he added. Jones was having none of it, but it can not be denied that the most eye-catching performance of this ultimately predictable victory - England's self-styled hunters eventually feasting on their Italian prey - was that of Sam Simmonds, the newest member of this side. Some players have got more credit than others.

Dylan Hartley, the captain, is also demanding England flex their muscles.

Chudinov was fifth in the men's skeleton in Sochi and later became a coach for the Russian national skeleton team. They can not wave the Russian flag at the event and, if they win, the Russian anthem will not be played.

"Italy have some very good players and also a very experienced coaching staff, so we know they'll be very well prepared", said Borthwick.

Having risen to prominence in the Premiership semi-finals last May, before making his global debut last November, Simmons has been trusted by Eddie Jones to start the Six Nations as his No 8 due to the injuries sustained by Billy Vunipola and Nathan Hughes, and the Exeter Chief certainly rewarded the head coach for his faith with two second-half tries and a performance of worthy of the worldwide stage.

"England have big guys like Mako Vunipola, Courtney Lawes, Maro toje, Chris Robshaw and Ben Te'o, and we were beaten up". "It is a massive set-piece contest".

"This is global rugby and these games are always intense encounters and we're expecting that intensity against Italy".

Maro Itoje is not happy against Samoa at Twickenham Stadium in November previous year.

Italy have been whitewashed in seven of their 18 Six Nations campaigns, including each of the last two.

Flankers Renato Giammarioli and Sebastian Negri have three games between them, while midfield organization Tommaso Castello and Tommaso Boni have a sum of only 13.

"Maybe on Sunday after the match it will be a hard evening, but we prepare to win matches and the wonderful thing about sport is that anything can happen", said O'Shea.
