March 06, 2013, 12:32 pm -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The surprising return to form of the England rugby team has been the talk of the Six Nations Tournament this year.
After an excellent showing in the autumn internationals, with victories over World Cup champions the All Blacks, the England Rugby Team is beginning to put the embarrassment of its 2011 behavioural and on-pitch indiscipline behind it.
England have an all-wins record so far and next up is Italy, playing at Twickenham on Sunday March 10th at 3pm. In last year's match against Italy at the StadioOlimpico in Rome, the squad relied largely on the boot of Owen Farrell as they limped past their opponents 19-15 in true underwhelming fashion.
Yet this is another year, and another team altogether. With Stuart Lancaster now settled as England coach, this third and final home game at Twickenham should be relatively straight-forward for England as they bid to win back the Six Nations crown from Wales.
This head-to-head with Italy comes one week ahead of their final game of the tournament, which could see them battling it out for top spot with the Welsh at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
Tickets are sure to be selling fast, so snap up all your extras like travel and accommodation in London hotels while you can.
The Doubletree by Hilton London Heathrow Airport is just £47 the night before the game – great 4* luxury for those travelling up. And a double at the Richmond Hill Hotel, a short train from the stadium, is £127 for March 9th. http://www.LondonTown.com
