Owen Farrell in fitness battle ahead of clash with Italy

ENGLAND coach Stuart Lancaster today rated Owen Farrell 50-50 for the RBS 6 Nations clash with Italy at Twickenham on March 10.

Farrell limped off with a thigh strain in the second half of last weekend's 23-13 victory over France and faces a race to be fit for the penultimate hurdle of his team's Grand Slam quest.

"Owen is making good progress and he's 50-50 for the Italy game. In the next week he'll be running, but the problem will be kicking. If there's a doubt we won't risk it," Lancaster said.
