It's a quick turnaround for all six of the sides in the Six Nations as Europe's greatest rugby tournament heats up as it moves into it's second week.

Six Nations Tips: France vs Italy (Sunday, 15:00 GMT)

It’s difficult to see where Italy will grab a win from in this year’s Six Nations competition. France looked good for the majority of their win against England and they should have no real problems dispatching Italy on Sunday.

France ran in three tries against England in Paris with captain Charles Ollivon going over twice with Vincent Rattez also crossing the whitewash. Les Bleus tailed off in the second half as England mounted a fightback, but they did enough to open up their 2020 campaign with a win.

Italy, on the other hand, were outplayed in every department as they conceded five tries and failed to register a single point. International rugby union is difficult, Italy have only won 12 Six Nations matches since they entered the tournament back in 2000. Win number 13 will not be happening against France.

We are backing France to keep their focus against the Italians, and we don’t envisage any real problems for them. We are backing the French to cruise to victory with 26-30 points success.
