England’s flying win against Italy and it is expected. The defending champions, who are looking for an unprecedented third title in a row, raced to a 10-point lead but were made to work hard by Italy, who were impressive with their attacking intent but ultimately ran out of steam against the England juggernaut in the last quarter.
England scored seven tries – three in the last 15 minutes – with Anthony Watson and Sam Simmonds getting two tries each and Owen Farrell, George Ford and Jack Nowell also going over. Farrell had an off day with the boot, kicking just four conversions and a penalty.

A triumphant begin for England however one weekend from now will be an entire diverse pot of fish. As Chris Foy addressed their, the Welsh are around the local area and looked wonderful against Scotland so make certain to go along with us then as we present to all of you the activity from Twickenham.
England played with an assaulting swagger and exactness that in the end demonstrated excessively for the Italians to deal with. Owen Farrell and George Ford directed the ensemble grandly and Anthony Watson demonstrated his completing capacity indeed.
The seat had a huge effect late on yet Sam Simmonds is the story. The No 8 indicated he can offer England a tremendous purpose of contrast with his pace in the free to run with work rate in the tight.
For Italy there were motivations to take heart, especially in the principal half yet it’s back to this plan’s beginning point for Conor O’Shea’s men.

Italy, though, were sparky and defiant. Full-back Matteo Minozzi, was only checked by a good saving tackle from Watson, the wing hurting his shoulder in the impact. Italy pressed from that position, winning a penalty that was knocked over by Allan to see Italy into the interval trailing 10-17.
The television match official was busy in the opening stages of the second, ruling out scores, and rightly so, for Watson at one end, the wing losing the ball as stretched for the line and then Boni who took advantage of a forward pass from Allan that would have not looked out of place in the Super Bowl.
