Fly-half Charlie Hodgson will go into the biggest game of his international career on Sunday with the total backing of England boss Andy Robinson.
Hodgson's painful goalkicking nightmare against France two weeks ago, when he missed three penalties and a late drop-goal attempt in an 18-17 Twickenham defeat, has put him under an intense spotlight.
But, having been entrusted once again with the kicking responsibilities against unbeaten RBS 6 Nations title contenders Ireland at Lansdowne Road on Sunday, he needs to have his radar in full working order.
"We have got no doubt about Charlie - we've got full confidence in him," said Robinson.
"Dave Alred (England kicking coach) has worked really well with him. Charlie is a very level person, a very committed, dedicated person and a very good professional.
"We know with Charlie, and the whole team, that there is tremendous self-belief and he will come through on Sunday."
Despite Robinson's clear vote of confidence, question marks still remain about Hodgson's ability to thrive under pressure.

If they come unstuck against Ireland, then it will be their fourth-successive championship defeat, a sequence they have not experienced since 1987.

Italy Under-20s held off a late Samoa blitz to retain their place in the World Rugby U20 Championship on Saturday and head coach Alessandro Troncon believes the experience will have served as a valuable lesson for his young troops.
