England look set to name an unchanged 23 for their RBS 6 Nations clash with Italy at Twickenham on Saturday with Geoff Parling ruled out of a return to the bench.

England forwards coach Graham Rowntree revealed that Parling had failed to recover from a knee problem in time to be involved in the second round clash.

Head coach Stuart Lancaster was planning to retain the starting XV from the 21-16 win over Wales in Cardiff and the only change he would have contemplated was among the replacements, where Parling could have provided specialist lock cover at the expences of Nick Easter or Tom Croft if he proved his fitness by Tuesday.
