Scotland hooker Ross Ford has warned his teammates to expect a physical battle when they face Italy in their second match of the Six Nations this weekend.
"We won't get it any easier this weekend. Italy have a brilliant pack so we need to make sure we front up in the areas England exposed against us," the 28-year-old told reporters.
"We've been working in training this week, trying to make sure that doesn't happen again. We need to put in a performance in those areas that allows us to play the way we want to play, on the front foot."
Scotland opened their campaign with a 38-18 defeat to England.
