Is England vs Italy on TV today? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Six Nations fixture

England will look to kick-start their defence of the Six Nations when they host Italy at Twickenham on Saturday.

Last year’s winners suffered a shock defeat to Scotland in their opener last weekend, while Italy were hammered 50-10 by France, who scored seven tries in the process.

Both nations will be trying to turn their form around in this game, but the pressure is definitely on England to get back to winning ways after also triumphing in the Autumn Nations Cup last year.

They have already been warned not to underestimate Italy though and Elliot Daly believes England are ready to “enforce their game” on their opponents.

Here’s everything you need to know about the match.

When is it?

The fixture takes place at Twickenham today: Saturday, 13 February.
