Six Nations: England run riot over Italy in Rome

Text size Aa Aa

In the Six Nations, Bath centre Jonathan Joseph sent an emphatic message to his doubters on Sunday with a hat-trick of tries as England trampled Italy 40-9 in Rome.

Nevertheless, England struggled in the first-half and laboured to an 11-9 lead at the Stadio Olimpico before an onslaught in the second-half.

The result means England now top the Six Nations standings, along with France, after back-to-back wins. Italy next host Scotland in what already appears to be the usual wooden spoon decider.
