England’s failure to get past the World Cup group stages prompted a change in management and philosophy that saw the Red Rose begin this year’s Six Nations with a battling 15-9 win over Scotland last week.
Although Vunipola was widely applauded after that victory, the 23-year-old credits new coach Eddie Jones with instilling a new, more sociable approach to rebuilding England’s confidence. Vunipola says England are benefiting from being allowed to socialise more than under the previous regime run by Stuart Lancaster, when players were told not to drink.
“I respond to the love and compassion Eddie shows the boys, me especially. He is very personable. We have had a few bonding sessions. It’s important for me to know what someone else is about, what motivates them, whether that be their family or scoring tries.
“It works better when you have a relationship with someone rather than just rocking up and playing for England,” Vunipola said.
Australian Jones is expected to reshuffle England’s pack for the visit to the Eternal City after releasing Gloucester flank Matt Kvesic and Wasps centre Elliot Daly from his training squad earlier this week. At the same time, he included Saracens flank Maro Itoje and fellow back row forward Josh Beaumont of Sale.
Jones hinted England may require greater speed up front, which could open the door to Harlequins back row forward Jack Clifford, who made his debut from the bench at Murrayfield.
“The playing conditions will be considerably different. They will be warmer, a faster pitch, different referee so I am anticipating we will be able to get our attack going a lot quicker than we did against Scotland.
“I’ve said it’s going to be a faster game so we could pick a faster pack,” said Jones.
Come Sunday afternoon, England’s thoughts will be focused on how to beat a promising-looking Italian side. Italy coach Jacques Brunel has made only two changes from the side that gave France a scare in a 21-23 defeat at the Stade de France last week.
Wing Andrea Buondonno will replace David Odiete, who suffered a left ankle sprain, while flank Robert Barbieri comes in for wing Leonardo Sarto, who is still out with a muscle problem. A decision will be taken on George Biagi, depending on his recovery from a muscular injury.
One of Italy’s big surprises last week was young flyhalf Carlo Canna, who on his tournament debut scored one of Italy’s two tries, made the conversion and finished the game with a penalty and a drop goal to his name as the Azzurri came close to causing an upset.
It prompted praise from Jones.
“It’s nice to receive compliments but maybe the tactic of [Eddie] Jones is to put me under pressure ahead of Sunday’s match. More than the points I scored or the compliments I received, I’m thinking about the two kicks and the penalty I missed – in my position, that’s unacceptable,” Canna said.
Canna expects a completely different team to show up, and has called on Italy to make the necessary adjustments to stop Jones’ men in their tracks.
“The France game is over, we paid a small price for our inexperience and that made the difference to the final score. Now we’re working hard to give England some food for thought. We’re facing a totally different team from last week – one that, in the first two phases, we’ll try to use the pack to push the team forward and open up the game.
