Youngs -England Desperate To Make Amends

Ben Youngs says England are eager to get their Six Nations campaign back on track when they take on Italy this Saturday.

England’s Grand Slam hopes were ended last time out at the Principality Stadium as Wales produced a second-half comeback to win 21-13, meaning Warren Gatland’s men are the only team to win all three of their matches.


The Red Rose return to action when they welcome rock-bottom Italy, who have lost all of their games, to Twickenham and the hosts are expected to rack up a sizeable victory in front of a packed crowd.

Scrum-half Youngs, who is in line to start the contest, says his side are chomping at the bit and are desperate to put in a strong performance against the Azzurri.

“After a loss, you want to get straight back out there and play again,” he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. “If we don’t get our preparation right or if we are slightly off, these games can become more difficult very quickly.

“We will approach this game like we have done the previous three because we want a really great performance. We want to put pressure on the other teams competing for the title. It’s a different challenge but a good one.”
