Mako Vunipola: 'No chance' for England unless they improve against Wales
MAKO Vunipola has warned his England team-mates they have "no chance" of winning the Grand Slam unless there is a significant improvement on their disjointed display against Italy.
Stuart Lancaster's men limped to an 18-11 victory at Twickenham on Sunday, setting them up for a shot at a first Grand Slam since 2003 when they face Wales in Cardiff on Saturday.
But Wales could retain their Six Nations title if they win by eight points or more, while a seven-point victory could see them edge it on a superior head-to-head record.
"We got the win against a quality Italian side but if we perform like that next week we will have no chance," said prop Vunipola, who made his first Test start against Italy.

"In the changing room we all know that. It feels like we lost the game. The boys are disappointed how we performed.
"Going to Cardiff will be a tough test. We have to put in a performance that is better than this."
