Robinson returns for England, Johnson on bench

 

England coach Clive Woodward has recalled fit-again Jason Robinson to the team for Sunday's final Six Nations match against Italy in Rome. Martin Johnson will start the game on the bench.

Robinson will start at fullback with Austin Healey dropping to the bench.

Also on the bench is former captain Lawrence Dallaglio, who has just returned to action after almost a year out with a knee injury.

England could still win the championship with a victory but would need Ireland to beat France in Paris on Saturday.
