England overcame an unexpectedly stern challenge from Italy to remain unbeaten in this year's Six Nations and stretch their winning streak to 17 matches.

Italy outplayed and out-thought a sloppy England to lead 10-5 at half-time, confusing the home side by choosing not to form rucks.

England countered the tactic better in the second half as they ran in a total of six tries to earn a bonus point.

They overtake Ireland with three wins to go top of the Six Nations table.
