January 12, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
The Six Nations tie of England v Italy is sure to inspire plenty of rugby fans to make the trip to the hotels London offers to cheer on the home side.

Martin Johnson's men will take on the Azzuri on February 12th 2011 and fans will hope the England players are on top form to provide an entertaining display and emerge victorious.

While the Italians have not traditionally been one of the strongest sides in the world, their reputation has been built up in recent times and the hosts will do well not to underestimate their ability.

The six nations involved in the competition are England, France, Italy, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

Johnson is set to name his 32-man squad for the contest soon and one player who is keen to make the final team is centre Riki Flutey, who has spent the majority of the past year injured.

But he played for Wasps against Newcastle recently and will be hoping he has done enough to edge his way into the manager's plans.

"All I need to do is get on the field and get game time under my belt - that will give me loads of confidence going forward to the Six Nations," he was quoted as saying.

The game kicks off at 14:30 GMT at Twickenham Stadium, with attendees from accommodation such as Durrants Hotel London advised to arrive early.
