Match Facts England have won each of the 30 men’s Test matches they have played against Italy, including all 24 in the Guinness Men's Six Nations, their average margin of victory in those 24 Championship matches is 28 points. The last time Italy hosted England in the Guinness Men's Six Nations (2022) they failed to score a point as they lost 33-0, it was the first time they’d failed to score a single point against England in the Championship and the sixth and most recent time against any opposition in the tournament. Italy have won half of their last eight home matches (W4 L4), including each of their last two (v Romania and Japan), the last time they won three on the spin at home was between 1997 and 1998, when they secured victories against Ireland, Scotland and finally Argentina. Italy come into this match off the back of two 50+ point defeats in the 2023 Rugby World Cup, against New Zealand and France, only once in their previous 50 Test matches had they suffered a defeat of this magnitude and not since 1999 had they endured back-to-back losses by such a margin (both v South Africa), they’ve never lost three consecutive matches by 50+ points. England recorded the best success rate at both the lineout (92%) and scrum (96%) during the 2023 Guinness Six Nations, while they gained the most maul metres (73) and scored the most tries directly from the maul (3) in last year’s Championship. Italy recorded the quickest average ruck speed of any side in the Guinness Men's Six Nations last year (3.0s), with 69% of their attacking rucks being completed in under three seconds, also a Championship high. Italy made the most dominant carries (181) and had the highest dominant carry rate (33%) of any nation in the Championship last year, while England averaged the most metres in contact of any side in the Guinness Six Nations in 2023, gaining 2.1 metres on average each time they carried into contact. Jamie George is set to captain England this year, the Saracens hooker has a 92% lineout success rate in his Guinness Six Nations career, the best rate of any player to attempt 100+ throws in the Championship. Federico Ruzza could win his 50th Test cap for Italy in this match; he won 41 lineouts in the Guinness Six Nations in 2023, over twice as many as any other player (Ollie Chessum, Thibaud Flament and James Ryan – 18 each) and was one of just two Italians to play every minute in the Championship last year (also Juan Ignacio Brex). Tommaso Allan (153) is 10 points away from overtaking Diego Dominguez (162) as Italy’s top points scorer in the Six Nations, while one try would see him become the Azzurri’s top try scorer in the Championship (currently 7, level with Mirco Bergamasco and Sergio Parisse); Allan also needs just 11 points to reach 500 in his Test career overall.
