RBS 6 Nations 2011: England Team to Face Italy

England have announced their team to face Italy in Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations 2011 clash.

England coach Martin Johnson has come out this week and said that Italy’s side is the strongest he has seen, which is high praise, indeed, and he has paid them a compliment by naming the same side which defeated Wales last Friday at the Millennium Stadium.

UPDATE On Friday morning, Andrew Sheridan was removed from the Starting XV and replaced by Alex Corbisiero at prop, after a back injury suffered in training on Thursday, meaning there is to be one change from last week’s line-up.
