Italy face stadium jinx for England test

STADIO OLIMPICO becomes the eighth venue to stage a Six Nations encounter when Italy entertain England this weekend.

Just four previous Test matches have been staged at Stadio Olimpico, the last of which was in 1996 against Wales -- Italy have never won at the venue.

Italy have never beaten England in their 17 previous Test encounters -- England have never failed to score a try in any of those games.
