The sun is out in Rome and the conditions are perfect for a free flowing game of Six Nations rugby, with England's young guns facing a home team high on confidence. 3pm is today's kick-off time and UK fans can watch Italy vs England free on ITV - here we'll explain how to watch a free Italy vs England live stream from anywhere with a VPN.
After a narrow defeat last week, England will be keen to get their 2022 Six Nations campaign back on track with a win against Italy. Coach Eddie Jones has rung the changes, with twice-capped Harry Randall starting in place of Ben Youngs, Jack Nowell getting another chance out on the wing, Jamie George in at hooker, Will Stuart as the new tight-head prop and Charlie Ewels in at lock.
The Azzurri have made three changes after losing 37-10 to France last week. South African-born flanker Braam Steyn is in, but wing Tommaso Menoncello - Italy's only try-scorer against Les Bleus - is out with an injury. Pietro Ceccarelli comes into the front row while Paolo Garbisi starts at fly-half.
Last week, Scotland stunned England to win the Calcutta Cup for the second year in a row. The Red Rose have never lost to Italy but coach Eddie Jones remains cautious, calling on his young side to "light up" Rome and continue that record come Sunday.
