Jones said: "We've had two really good training weeks and we feel this is the 23 that can start the tournament with a bang".
England get their campaign for a third-straight Six Nations crown underway against wooden spoon favourites Italy. Their scrum was very impressive and they performed in the lineout. "The tournament (is) only going to get better". "It is terrible and hard at the time but it is enjoyable because you know it is making you better as a team and a player". Eddie Jone's men have been impressive in the run-up to the tournament, thrashing Argentina and Samoa in November previous year, and are sure to be full of confidence at the Stadio Olimpico. This is an opportunity on Sunday to ratchet the gears up. With wins in all 23 meetings, England have dominated their opponents and 21 points has been the lowest margin of victory in the last four clashes. I'm impressed by [Tomasso] Castello and the young half-back [Marcello] Violi.
"He's come on in leaps and bounds since the start of the season", insisted Brunel, whose side face Ireland in Paris on Saturday.
"Everyone in Europe is fitter". Shirts may not be earned with even a comprehensive victory, but they can certainly be lost with an unconvincing performance. Italy are one of those countries.
Rugby Union is not so strong at Test level that it can afford a sustained decline among its traditionally major nations and a French revival would be a welcome boost to the global game a year out from the 2019 World Cup in Japan.

Yet, to make room for Te'o, Jones has chose to omit one of those reliable regulars in the shape of Jonathan Joseph.
The hosts looked resurgent, but Rome was silenced by a superb try from England; Farrell broke through a gap and flipped the ball back inside to George Ford who put the game beyond Italy.
"We want to get our set piece more consistent and our defence more ruthless". He did a lot of work by himself which has been well publicised. "He has some real ability and has a great attitude to go with it".
When asked about his selection of the outside centre, Jones said: "Ben will add a different dimension at 13 for us".
"I want him to hit the line hard, that's what he's good at. When they [Italy] get the ball they will see this white line of jerseys coming at them, and there's nowhere to go".
Simon Mail previews England's opening Six Nations game in Italy and expects the defending champions to have few problems getting off to a winning start.
Backrow Simmonds only made his debut for England in November against Argentina, and made his first start against Samoa the same month.
Despite being ineligible for the game in Rome, as he serves a ban for a unsafe tackle on Jamie Roberts, the 75-cap flanker trained with Jones' squad at their Surrey base this week.
"I've dug in and I've given everything I can for these last couple years", Lawes said.
The Cavs announced he was dealing with a left shoulder issue before the game. "I just think our mindset needs to change". Trevor Ariza , the Rockets' starting small forward, and Eric Gordon , their sixth man, didn't even play due to injuries.
The U.N. says more than 270,000 people have been displaced in Idlib because of the government onslaught since December 15. In August 2016, five Russian soldiers were killed after their helicopter was shot down by rebel groups in Idlib.
Brunel could entrust the key position of fly-half to a 19-year-old in Matthieu Jalibert , having coached the teenager at Bordeaux. Davies is also an Olympics Sevens silver-medallist, so if these two are selected, there will be plenty of skills on show.
But you can not do this. "This is letting him have his power over us". "She (the victim) will come out and tell you this". Update , 2/2/18, 1:15 p.m.: Margraves appeared in court again this afternoon, this time to apologize to the judge .
Modi took the Congress head-on, listing out the State government's failures, including the issue of unspent Central grants. The state will be witnessing the elections in next couple of months. "Electricity will brighten their lives", Modi said.
