St Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, and while most choose to spend it with loved ones, the rugby fans amongst us will be concentrating on one thing and one thing only tomorrow.
England travel to Rome to take on Italy in the Six Nations, looking to keep their Championship and Grand Slam hopes alive. The Italians will be a tricky proposition, after narrowly losing out to France last week.
Rome is certainly a romantic city, and James Haskell is getting in the mood, sending former Stade Francais teammate Sergio Parisse this message.
Don’t ask, just watch.

This is hilarious in fairness to Haskell, but one must wonder what the Italy captain makes of it all.
It’s time to roll out a cliché, and say that the Azzurri will have a picture of Haskell nailed to the wall of the dressing room tomorrow afternoon.
Kick-off at the Stadio Olimpico is at 3pm local time tomorrow. It promises to be a big one.
Haskell’s first tackle on Parisse is sure to be an interesting one…
