    Christ, they've just beaten Italy, Italy, folks and just look at Woodward you'd think England had beat Ireland or Australia. In fact England played a pretty crappy game in all honesty. Further evidence of England's mediocre play was on evidence against Wales.

    The really lovely thing about the Ford-Farrell combination for Ford's try was two-fold: Firstly, Ford had the vision to see the mismatch (Farrell against two Italian forwards, plus a dog-legged defence); and secondly, that Farrell had the intelligence to run his line a little wider so as to create space for Ford to run into and receive the scoring pass. It's an excellent piece of work, and a very cleverly worked play by the pair of them.

    Great match of Italy, there's nothing to do vs the 2nd in world ranking. England superior in physical shape and tecnical playing, but Italy seems not that far to be at the level of England at least in the first half. In fact the biggest problem of Italy today, that have since ever, is the loosing of muscularity and energy in the second half, problem where Connor O'Shea is still working hardly to resolve. Italy need years to know how properly and professionally train (i mean drain all the secrets from the biggest) their players since younghest age to grow up them physically strong, as UK rugby movement do. Isn't only a fact of players but even a fact of staffs.
    Almost all the matches Italy lose with a big margin on the score (i will call it a "liar" result), it's due precisely to the physical collapse in the second half of Italy, even if they play well, as this match have showned us, the second half was decisive to the large england score margin.
    When Italy will be able to have a bench with good players (and he's near to have it a lot of young primises) able to sustain a second half with almost the same rhytm of the first, well we will see a very strong Italy. Ball passing and playscheme are improved a lot.
    Surely the Italian entire Rugby movement has grow up a lot.
