Liverugbytickets.co.uk can reveal that England’s ‘luckiest’ stadium to play in is the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy. England have been victorious in all six games they have played against The Azzurri in their new home, scoring an average of 5 tries per game.

The Roses once again scored 5 tries when they travelled to Rome last month (February 13th), winning the game 33-0.

Completing the top five is Murrayfield in Edinburgh, Scotland. England kicked off their Six Nations campaign at Murrayfield against Scotland, in the worst way possible: losing the evenly matched contest 20-17.

The English have scored 17 tries in 12 games at the stadium (1.42 per match), whereas the Scots average 1.56 tries per game at their home stadium, with both teams scoring 1 try each in this year’s match.
