“They are a team that has improved a lot in the last couple of years. They are a physical team that likes to play more and more with the ball.
“We will be careful and we know it will be hard for us on Sunday. There is a bit of fear because we always want to do well.
“The dream of every player who participates in this tournament is to achieve a Grand Slam. It will be difficult for us to win in Italy but we have worked well during the week and we will do our best to be ready on Sunday.”
