England ran riot over Ireland today!

England ran riot over Ireland today at Twickenham, Eight Trys' in all.  They will be very pleased with that result today.   I heard on the radio one Irish pundit say they did not expect to win today but I bet they did not dream they would lose in that fashion.  Bet the Irish Eyes will not be smiling tonight.

Quilter International -RWC Warm up Match 3

 England 57 v 15 Ireland

England will have a good night tonight and are back on schedule for the World Cup.    Ben Youngs looked a bit lack lustre today let's hope, he sorts that out. 

The forward pack looked good, but  Mako Vunipola hobbledoff late in the game and is a huge worry.  Maybe Eddie's decision to name five props in their Rugby World Cup squad could backfire.   Curry and Underhill were all over the park. 

 Joe Cokasaniga scores his side's first try of the game during the Quilter International match at Twickenham paimages

England Captain Owen Farrell, said after the match: 

"We are still building. There is a lot left in us and we are still looking forward to playing our best rugby. It was definitely fun. I love it every time I put this jersey on. We are building. The most exciting thing is that we have our best rugby ahead of us."
