Rugby U


Wow that was quick. The ball went to the backs and in a blink of an eye it had gone through all the hands, Joseph muscling his way over

71- Joseph had two men hanging off him but he was strong enough to get over in the corner again. Farrell with the conversion... but misses

So 8 mins to go, and England have a healthy 33-9 lead. The result is done, but with an eye on points difference, another try would be handy

Glen Jackson (ref and ex player) blows his whistle 'Sorry I ripped the ball out in the tackle (with his studs)...first time ever' LOL


75- Italy tiring badly. Basic attacking move, huge gaps and Itoje carries on, passes to the backs and Farrell runs in under the posts. Easy

75- Farrell convert from under the posts. England now lead 40-9 and that close tight messy first half? A distant memory

77- England on the attack again from the halfway. Goode powers up towards the 22 but is bundled into touch. ITA with the ball from line out

Kruis now who bundles Italy into touch. England take the quick throw, but Hill is pinged for coming in the side. A chance for ITA to regroup

79- Itoje again competing in the air but ITA retain possession in England's half. One last attack then
