Flood to replace Farrell for Italy

England head coach Stuart Lancaster says Toby Flood will "take on the mantle" of replacing Owen Farrell at fly-half for England's Six Nations match against Italy on Sunday.

Farrell, 21, picked up a thigh injury in the 23-13 win over France but is expected to be fit for selection against Wales on the final weekend.

England have a 100% record so far in this year's tournament.
