Stuart Lancaster has named an unchanged England starting line-up for Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations match against Italy at the Stadio Olimpico.
The XV who beat Wales at Twickenham are retained while there is just one change on the bench where Manu Tuilagi replaces Alex Goode.
Lancaster said: “It’s great to be able to name an unchanged XV and we have been able to achieve consistency of selection from a very competitive squad this campaign.
“The Wales result was very significant for us but we need to finish the tournament well in Rome. We have had a tight turnaround and the key this week has been to manage the players’ recovery and get them in the best shape for what will be a tough match against Italy.”
*UPDATE* Joe Marler has dropped out to be with his wife at the birth of his first child, so Mako Vunipola starts with Matt Mullan coming onto the bench.
