I'm not happy but I'm comfortable with how we did against Ireland. We did okay considering that it was a new experiment with Andrea Masi and Pietro Travagli. But the two did very well, especially Masi.
Our defence was very good but our kicking attack was rather poor. But that will improve game by game. It's a new side with a new coach and they need time. After all Rome wasn't built in a day. We have to deal with the fact that it's going to take time.
Our attitude was good. Ireland were really unhappy because our defence was good and we played quite well. But they deserved the win because they had more attacking options and we missed the penalties too. They had more desire to win.
We need to adjust our attacking options - that would be a good basis to start from. It was pretty poor on Saturday. That's where our weakness lies and we need to find a solution to that. That's what we need to work on in order to be able to move forwards.
It's a good basis for Nick Mallett to focus on and start from. Better kicking would give us more options and I'm sure that that's what Mallett will be working on and it will come with time.
I wasn't really pleased with David Bortolussi. I don't think he's in the best shape and I think Mallett should start looking at his options and who can replace him because his kicking game wasn't really good at all.
England threw the game against Wales away. But their attitude was great and they believed in themselves right until the end so the game against them is going to be very hard.
They'll come with a very organised playing style and determined to take the points back. We've got to have the right attitude. We know we're the underdogs so we've not got much to lose. If we try even harder and put as much pressure on them as possible and take all our chances then maybe we can pull off a shock.
If Wales can do it at Twickenham, why can't we do the same in Rome? And if we give 120% then maybe we can. But we can't fall asleep for one second. If we lose our concentration for even one or two minutes then that could prove fatal.
