Jones said an overtly physical midfield would be important against Italy, for all they have yet to beat England in 24 attempts and are also on a 20-game overall losing streak in the Six Nations.

Jamie George, now seemingly established as first-choice hooker even if and when Dylan Hartley regains fitness, agreed, saying that there was a "night and day" difference to the squad a year on from the Murrayfield defeat. "When you lose a few games on the bounce it's hard to enjoy yourself on the training pitch because of the pressure and in turn you struggle to express yourself in the game; you start to look at yourselves a bit more".

"We know that's their game of the year".

The hosts scored eight tries - including two apiece for Manu Tuilagi and Brad Shields - to run out 57-14 winners against opponents who have now lost their last 21 outings in the competition.

They retained possession to good effect as they attacked the line and when the moment came Allan sent Luca Morisi over with a pinpoint floating pass.

"The focus for us was to put some pressure on Wales and I thought we did that against Italy".

Recalled wing Joe Cokanasiga was, however, chosen as the man-of-the-match as England bounced back from their defeat by Wales last time out in style. "He's been fantastic. He's a young talent who is only going to get better and that's a scary thought".

England coach Eddie Jones says he has a score to settle with Scotland in rugby's Six Nations after their overzealous celebrations of 12 months ago.

"They should always consider rewarding merit, it doesn't matter what competition you're in", the England head coach said.

'To improve it [the Six Nations], you've got to find a way of making sure you've got the six best teams in Europe always playing in it, ' Jones said.
