Italy was kept scoreless in their test on Friday by England going down 37-0 at the end.

Tries from Ben Youngs, Joe Marchant, Ellis Genge and Anthony Watson saw the hosts to victory.

Owen Farrell chipping in with 17 points with his boot.

Italy is in the same group as South Africa and New Zealand. This is now looks more likely that they will not make it our of the pool stages unless they can turnaround what we have seen from them the last couple of weeks.

There will be slight concern for Jones over Luke Cowan-Dickie, who left the field.

The first half was nothing to right home about from both teams but that was expected form an English side with so much changes.

England was only leading 9-0 at the break but put the Italians away in the second half of the match.

Italy did try but against some classy players in this England side they were just not good enough.

England defence has been great on the night as well as their set pieces. They are the one team that looks as a real contender in this World Cup.

The scorers:

For England:
Tries: Youngs, Marchant, Genge, Watson
Cons: Farrell 4
Pens: Farrell 3
