England vs Italy rugby blowout 2015 RBS 6 nations

In the last round, England handily defeated Italy by 30 points, despite Italy taking the early lead. The past 20 matches in the last 24 years, Italy have never beat England, although in the last two competitions prior to this one, the Italians have come really, really close. 

England will be sure to come out hot against a very competitive Irish team. Be sure to get to Doc's early as we anticipate many rugby fans will be taking in Sunday's matchup.
