The fifteen of the Rose won against the Irish selection (18-7) as part of the Autumn Nations Cup.
England won at home over Ireland (18-7), Saturday at Twickenham on behalf of the 2nd day of the Autumn Nations Cup and consolidated its first place in Group A of this competition unpublished.
The only inexperienced element present at the kickoff on the English side, the center Ollie Lawrence, 21, did not mismatch in the middle of the strangers started by Eddie Jones, who broke many offensives of the men in green, like of this saving tackle by Henry Slade on Chris Farrell 12 minutes from time.
The Rose pack impresses
The XV à la rose relied on his pack to progress early in the game. Upon receiving a candle from Owen Farrell, Jonny May nabbed the ball from Irish back Keenan to score the first try (5-0, 17th), which Farrell then failed to transform.
May, decked out with a very beautiful mustache, did it again just three minutes later with a splendid action: on an Irish touch lost in the English camp, he played kicking for himself and went up almost all the ground to go flatten, and this time, Farrell easily brought two more points to his team (12-0, 21st).
This 31st English try since his debut in 2013 saw the 30-year-old Gloucester winger become the 2nd best try scorer in his team’s history, tied with Ben Cohen and Will Greenwood, 18 tries from record holder Rory Underwood. The recent winners of the Six Nations Tournament therefore reached the break with a twelve point advantage.
Farrell then added six points to his score by taking on two penalties (18-0, 52nd). The Saracens star has repeatedly targeted scrum half Jamison Gibson-Park and fullback Hugo Keenan, not very happy with their kicking game on Saturday.
The English to the Welsh revealer next week
Ireland saved the honor thanks to a late try from Jacob Stockdale in the 74th, but they did endure their second defeat of the year in England after that conceded last February at the Six Nations Tournament (24-12 ).
Next Saturday, the English will travel to Wales, dominated by the Irish on the first day (32-9), while Ireland will host Georgia on Sunday, largely beaten 40-0 by England at the opening of the competition.
