Updated on Saturday 9 March 2019 by @TVNewsroom

ITV will broadcast the Six Nations 2019 clash between England and Italy this evening.

The match takes place at Twickenham, where England start as overwhelming favourites to prevail.

This is the 25th meeting between the nations since they first met in 1991 and England maintain a 100% record in that time.

That statistic seems unlikely to come under threat this year, as Eddie Jones continues to build his squad ahead of the World Cup, while Italy have failed to make any great strides recently and sit in their customary place at the bottom of the table.

Mark Pougatch will be live on ITV and ITV HD from 4.00pm, where he’ll be joined in the studio by Jonny Wilkinson, Clive Woodward and Lawrence Dallaglio.

Pitchside reports comes from Martin Bayfield, Marco Bortolami and Maggie Alphonsi, while match commentary is provided by Nick Mullins, Ben Kay and Ugo Monye.

Kick-off 4.45pm.

The BBC will also air Six Nations action this afternoon as Scotland host Wales at Murrayfield.
