Andrea Masi says that England are more dangerous than Wales ahead of their showdown in Cardiff next weekend.

Italy full-back Andrea Masi has tipped England to win the Six Nations ahead of title challengers Wales.

The Italians put in an impressive showing despite losing 18-11 to the Red Rose on Sunday at Twickenham, just two weeks after being beaten 26-9 at home by the Dragons.

However, Masi, who picked up the man of the match award at the weekend, believes that England have the edge over the Welsh.

"It's going to be a tough game but I think England are a bit more dangerous than Wales," said Masi.

"We were quite happy to compete against England and this was a very good performance by Italy.

"We came from two poor games and today we played better rugby, more aggressive and much more physical."

Italy battle Ireland in their last match of the tournament.
