England v Italy Hospitality

Twickenham, Saturday 12th February 2011

England 59 - 13 Italy

England's second fixture in the RBS Six Nations 2011 saw the Italians arrive at Twickenham for a much hyped opening home match for England at the home of rugby.

After defeating a strong Welsh side in Cardiff a week earlier for the first time in 8 years, England were out to consolidate their strong start by putting on an impressive display in front of the Twickenham fans.

Corporate entertainment at the Official Twickenham Hospitality facility got underway in style, as hospitality hostesses greeted guests warmly with Champagne at the Cardinal Vaughan restaurant to get the day underway.

There was a buzz around Twickenham ahead of the game, with corporate hospitality guests hoping for an emphatic home win in the England v Italy match to keep England's hopes of winning the Grand Slam firmly on track.

 

With the complimentary bar in full swing, guests took their seats to enjoy a sumptuous four course luncheon at the Twickenham Hospitality restaurant, courtesy of Jamie Oliver's Fabulous Feasts.

Our celebrity guest speaker at the England v Italy Hospitality facility was ex-England Captain Richard Greenwood. A firm favourite amongst England fans, he gave the lowdown on Italian rugby as well as fielding questions from the Twickenham corporate hospitality guests on his famous son, Will Greenwood, and all things England.

With officially allocated RFU England v Italy match tickets along the West Stand sidelines, clients had unrivalled views of all the action on the Twickenham pitch. After the national anthem had been boomed out by the Twickenham home fans, England were poised to take on their fiery Italian counterparts in what promised to be another exciting RBS Six Nations match.

England lit the touch paper in the opening moments when Toby Flood broke through and released the explosive Chris Ashton to run clear and secure England's first try with his signature swan dive.

England looked dangerous in possession and made Italy pay when Shontayne Hape showed impressive strength to crash through the Azzurri defence, offloading to the supporting Ashton who crossed the try line for his, and England's second try. The reliable Flood added the extras with pinpoint accuracy.

The relentless England forwards didn't let up, carving out an opportunity for Mark Cueto to go over for an extremely popular try with the Twickenham hospitality guests in the stands. The intensity and flair of England's play was electrifying, with the capacity crowd at Twickenham seeing a vintage display from this exciting young side. Nick Easter created England's third try in 10 minutes when he barged through and gave a one-handed offload to Captain Mike Tindall, who gratefully went over the line to score.

The Twickenham Hospitality guests were delighted at half time in the England v Italy match, with Martin Johnson's men in rampant form and still hungry form more tries.

It didn't take England long to regain their momentum, with powerful running from Matt Banahan creating space for Ashton who, with the crowd on their feet, surged clear to score his third try under the Twickenham posts. Soon after, replacement scrum-half Danny Care exploited the gaps in the leaky Italian defence to score yet another try that Jonny Wilkinson duly converted. A stubborn Italy salvaged some pride for their travelling fans at Twickenham when they created a rolling maul from a lineout, allowing Fabio Ongario to grab the consolation try.

England were not going to allow that to spoil their party at Twickenham, as James Haskell burst through a crumbling Italian defence to score, while the imperious Chris Ashton took advantage of more good running from Banahan to score his fourth try of the day. At the full time whistle, Ashton and England received a wonderful ovation from the Twickenham capacity crowd, having seen Ashton set a new RBS Six Nations record for the most tries from a player in one match and England score a half century of points for the first time since 2007.

Back in the Twickenham Hospitality facility, the atmosphere was buzzing after another electrifying match in which England's exciting young side showed their potency. The much-welcomed post match gourmet buffet was served as hospitality guests discussed their favourite tries and enjoyed the corporate hospitality well into the evening.

Our England v Italy Hospitality packages at Twickenham remain a firm favourite, with corporate guests complimenting the high standard of rugby hospitality on offer in our luxurious Official Twickenham Hospitality facility.
