Watson and Simmonds at the double in Rome rout

England scored seven tries on the way to an emphatic 46-15 win away to Italy as they began the defence of their Six Nations title in style on Sunday.

Their attack, led by two-try cameos from Anthony Watson and Six Nations newcomer Sam Simmonds, offered plenty with the fulcrum of George Ford and Owen Farrell always busy.

Italy's ongoing endeavour was rewarded when Mattia Bellini touched down in the left corner after England were exposed out wide for a second time, but any hope of causing an upset expired when Farrell sent Ford over.

Robshaw was at the helm for the four successive runner-up finishes in the NatWest 6 Nations that scarred the reign of Stuart Lancaster until his departure after the team's 2015 World Cup failure.

"I have selected the strongest available side to play Italy this weekend and the players are excited to play in Rome", Jones said.

There was to be no repeat this time around and England raced into an early lead as some slick passing following a lineout on the left deep in Italy's 22 saw the ball reach Watson, who turned over in the far corner.

Youngs's replacement Danny Care put Simmonds in for his second try in the 75th minute with a beautifully delayed pass.

ITV is showing this afternoon's match between Italy and England with coverage starting at 2.15pm and kick-off set for 3pm. He's different from Billy and Nathan and sometimes it takes sides a bit of time to adjust to that, but our adjustment was good'.

And the speed theme continued as Jones rated Watson and Jonny May as "close to being the quickest wingers in the world".

Ford, though, could land neither angled conversion and Youngs's sad exit on a motorised cart seemed to distract England momentarily.

Italy created a number of opportunities, but ultimately couldn't handle the more accurate English attack.

When Italy did get in for tries, more often than not, England were caught narrow.

Another of Parisse's teammates has his fair share of experience, with Alessandro Zanni returning to the international team for the first time in 23 months - in the unfamiliar position of lock, rather than in the back-row - to win his 100th cap.

Italy can be dangerous opening day opponents, ready to spring a surprise when they are at their freshest and least affected by injury.

When it was suggested to the Australian that Wigglesworth would fit the description, Jones replied: "Could be".

The red-booted Simmonds burst unstoppably off the side of a maul, showing the serious pace that made him a highly effective sevens player earlier in his career, and England had their bonus point. They've got that fox mentality where they do clever things in the game.

"We know we're off in certain areas, we know the progress we have to make".

In the opening 20 minutes, there was a sense of inevitably about Italy's performance - limp, gutless and error-ridden.

The problem with modern rugby is that the players are too good. You never like to see one of your team-mates go off injured, so fingers crossed'.

England have now won all 24 of its matches against Italy.

Italy responded through Tommaso Benvenuti's try which Tommaso Allan converted along with a penalty before the break. "It is a good start to the campaign, we need to make sure we go away and work hard for next week".
