FULL-TIME: ITALY 11-52 ENGLAND
So, it's a very handsome win for Lancaster's men, but not quite enough to surpass Ireland's tremendous points difference on "Super Saturday". They now turn to Paris and pray France can do them a favour. Thanks for joining us.
CONVERSION, ENGLAND, FARRELL! 11-52
TRY, ENGLAND, ROBSHAW! 11-50 They turn the ball over, and captain Robshaw crashes over from a great Ford break.
The maul is failed, and the ball turned over. Italian scrum, with the clock red.
England are back in the 22, though, with a lineout. Looking for one more try to boost their points difference.
Just a penalty against Farrell, as the fly-half had a rush of blood to the head and dragged the Italian away by his neck.
Off the ball incident here, Farrell and Gori involved.
Italy have a lineout on the English 10m line.
Allan cannot convert from the touchline.
TRY, ITALY, SARTO! 11-45 From nowhere, Leonardo Sarto intercepts and outpaces Robshaw to land a consolation blow for the hosts.
CONVERSION, ENGLAND, FARRELL! 6-45
TRY, ENGLAND, TUILAGI! 6-43 The hulking centre simply walks over the top of the Italian midfield to score under the posts. Tommy Allan hadn't a hope.
The mistakes keep coming from Italy as this game begins to peter out. England not done yet, though.
CONVERSION, ENGLAND, FARRELL! 6-38
TRY, ENGLAND, VUNIPOLA! 6-36 Really messy Italian defence, leaving themselves short around the fringes. Twelvetrees makes the initial break, and Vunipola flops over from point-blank range.
Game really opening up here with some end-to-end attacking. Italy have the ball again in English territory.
Italy build their way into the visitors' 22, but yet again, a silly penalty is their undoing.
CONVERSION, ENGLAND, FARRELL! 6-31
TRY, ENGLAND, NOWELL! 6-29 A special moment for young Jack Nowell, who scores his first Test try.
And there's a yellow card coming for Bortolami for playing the ball offside inside his 22. England opt for the scrum.
Silly spill from Vunipola is mirrored by Garcia's knock-on in his own in-goal area. Tom Youngs and Manu Tuilagi coming on for the visitors, who have a scrum-five.
England win a penalty and punt down to the home 22.
Tommy Allan replaces Orquera
Subdued, scrappy start to the second half. Italy in possession inside their own half.
Orquera restarts proceedings here in Rome, England eyeing more points.
HALF-TIME: ITALY 6-24 ENGLAND
CONVERSION, ENGLAND, FARRELL! 6-24 Fly-half slots the extras.
TRY, ENGLAND, BROWN! 6-22 Brown carves through a gap created by Farrell to canter in untouched from 35m.
Italy shooting themselves in the foot with some silly handling errors. Competing well at the breakdown, however.
CONVERSION, ENGLAND, FARRELL! 6-17 No problems with the simple conversion.
TRY, ENGLAND, FARRELL! 15-6 Finally, England break Italy down. Smart pick-and-go rugby round the fringes, and the space was there from close range for Farrell to pick his spot.
England win for the penalty and put into touch at the corner. Big chance here.
England into the 22 again after good work from Care and Brown. Looking for try number two.
Scything break from the lively Burrell has brought England roaring forward into the 22 again. But Jonny May is picked up and clattered into touch by Esposito.
PENALTY, ITALY, ORQUERA! 6-10 Orquera lands a brilliant long range kick off another scrum penalty
Italy somehow kept out there as Sarto gets hauled down inches short. England win the penalty and clear.
Italy attack well from first phase, but McLean's ambitious offload doesn't come off.
CONVERSION, ENGLAND, FARRELL! 10-3 Farrell slots from out wide.
TRY, ENGLAND, BROWN! 8-3 England have the breakthrough. Great rugby from the visitors, smart hands from Burrell and Brown has too much pace for the cover defence in the corner.
PENALTY, ENGLAND, FARRELL! 3-3 The pivot levels things up from long range.
Well defended by the hosts who threaten to break away with Campagnaro. Lots of turnovers here.
Italy fail to secure the restart, and England will have a lineout in the home 22.
PENALTY, ITALY, ORQUERA! 3-0 England penalised at scrum time, and Orquera punishes them from 35m out.
Scrappy opening few minutes in Rome, several knock-ons from both sides.
Italy with the early possession just inside English territory.
And we're underway at Stadio Olimpico as Owen Farrell kicks off.
Teams are out here in Rome, kick-off moments away...
While Lancaster's only change from the side that beat Wales is to promote loosehead Mako Vunipola from the bench in place of Joe Marler, who awaits the birth of his first child. Matt Mullan takes Vunipola's place among the subs.
Italy boss Jacqus Brunel welcomes back talisman skipper Sergio Parisse to the starting lineup.
Hello and welcome to live coverage of the first Six Nations fixture of "Super Saturday", where England travel to Rome in search of a big win to take the title. The Italians have lost all four games so far this year, and will be itching to set the record straight against Stuart Lancaster's men. Lots at stake here, kick-off in half an hour. Don't go away!
