Find out how the England boys have been preparing for the visit of Italy, after their confidence-inducing comeback against Wales
The England camp has been buzzing this weekend after the confidence-boosting win over Wales last Friday, especially after being 10-0 down. Sky Sports presenter Alex Payne grabbed George Kruis and Ben Youngs in the weights room to pick through England’s mindset as they scored two tries through Anthony Watson and Jonathan Joseph. Youngs was impressed particularly with JJ’s footwork, ‘that outside step, you’re not coached to do that, that’s something that is very special’.
As for the head coach, Stuart Lancaster, his message ahead of Italy was concise. ‘it’s all about to do the simple things well’.
Finally a relaxed Mako and Billy Vunipola were quizzed on how they can break down Italy. Billy said. ‘The message from the general is that we don’t want to play in our own half. We have to grind them down and play in the right areas.”
The countdown to Twickenham is well and truly on.
