England ran in eight tries as they hammered Italy 57-14 on Saturday at Twickenham on Saturday afternoon to keep them in contention for the Six Nations title.
Following Wales beating Scotland earlier in the day, Eddie Jones and his men knew that only a victory would keep them in the race for the title and they did not give Italy an inch.
Manu Tuilagi and Brad Shields each scored a brace to bag four of the eight tries scored on thee day. Owen Farrell and George Ford had a field day with the boot as Farrell kicked four conversions and a penalty while Ford landed three conversions.
Italy were no match for the physicality of the English who used their big ball carriers to bash over the Italians and keep their winning streak against the Azurri in check.
Luca Morisi and Tommy Allan scored tries for Italy in a losing cause which confirmed a last place finish for Italy who will face France in their last match next weekend.
The win puts England within one point of Wales who remain on top of the log while Ireland and France go head to head later today. A win for Ireland could see them come within a point of England should the secure a bonus point while a loss would mean that Ireland are out of contention for the trophy.
With everything to play for, it looks like the Six Nations title could go down to the wire with all eyes fixed on Ireland vs France before we turn our attention to the last weekend where Ireland will face Wales while England will host Scotland.
