It's time to catch up with the O2 Inside Line show again, as this week Danny Care gets behind the camera to take you behind the scenes in the England camp ahead of their game with Italy. There's also a cook-off between Toby Flood and Dan Cole.
After a strong performance by Italy against Ireland last weekend, this weekend's game at Twickenham could prove to be a decent test for the home side, who picked up a good win over Wales in the opening game.
There's a few tweaks that need to take place to make England a far stronger side though, and if they get that right, Italy and Sergio Parisse may just find themselves up against a challenge that they're simply not equipped to handle.
It should be fascinating nonetheless as Italy, the perennial underdogs, seem to be building nicely and have shown that they can mix it up with the best of them on their day. England will be more than aware of that, and preparations this week will have been no laughing matter.
That said, in this video we go behind the scenes and see some of the stuff they get up to in their off time. There's a cook-off for Austin Healey, some heads comparisons, and a prop with a tan.
