Lancaster names unchanged England squad

England head coach Stuart Lancaster has named an unchanged match day squad for Saturday’s RBS 6 Nations match against Italy at Twickenham (2.30pm, live on BBC 1).

The 23 players will re-assemble at Pennyhill Park on Wednesday evening, with the starting XV and replacements will be announced at 9.45am on Thursday.
 
Lancaster said: “We’ll name the team on Thursday but we’ve gone for the same squad that played against Wales as we look to build consistent performances.
 
“There are many players pushing hard for selection and we are looking forward to watching their club games this weekend.”
