Italy vs England 6 Nations Rugby – 14 Feb 2016
Italy vs England 6 Nations Rugby game will be taking place on the 14th Feb 2015 which is a Sunday. In 2015 the winners of the 6 Nations tournament Ireland made their first back to back championship wins in 66 years and will be hoping for a hatrick of victories this time around. Italy were not a famous nation in the world of rugby but have slowly grown a following and year to year seem to show an improvement in their play in which the other 6 nations teams no longer see Italy as an easy game.
Italy have been in the tournament now since the year 2000 and the Italians love the 6 nations and the Olympic stadium is always packed to the rafters for all the games after moving from the Flaminio due to refurbishments. But the extra capacity at the Olympic Stadium in Rome has only added to the atmosphere of the occasion.
The English Rugby team have had a difficulties recently after for the first time not qualifying for the second stage at the 2015 Rugby world cup on home soil. England have now for the first time appointed a foreign head coach, a Austrialian Eddie Jones will take the reins for this 2016 6 Nations campaign with a huge traveling party of England fans embarking on Rome to see if Mr Jones can turn their fortunes around.
