London - England coach Stuart Lancaster is set to keep faith with the team that beat Wales in the opening round of the Six Nations for Saturday's match against Italy, despite an improved injury situation.
Lock Geoff Parling and centers Brad Barritt and Kyle Eastmond resumed training Monday, while flanker Tom Wood and lock Courtney Lawes drew nearer the end of their rehabilitation from ankle problems.
Lancaster was impressed with how a patched-up side played in the 21-16 win in Cardiff on Friday and says "I wouldn't envisage too many — if any — changes."
Prop David Wilson is struggling with a neck injury and star center Manu Tuilagi is not back to full running yet as he fights a chronic groin injury.
Lancaster names his line-up for Italy on Thursday.
