England’s heavyweights battered sorry Italy into submission as they racked up eight tries to keep their title hopes alive.
Here is how social media reacted:
Ok, it was only Italy but read my thoughts on the England midfield, yesterday and implications for the future. Manu merits a mention @ST_Sport— Stuart Barnes (@SBarnesRugby) March 9, 2019

England have recorded a 57-14 win over Italy, with six of our own #TigersFamily lads playing a role in the BIG victory at Twickenham … including a double from Manu Tuilagi!#GuinnessSixNations #ENGvITA 🏴 🇮🇹 pic.twitter.com/1UFZUkyqX8
England player ratings. Big 80s from Joe Cokanasiga and George Kruis. Manu Tuilagi and the front row pitching in heavily, too. https://t.co/mBFxEtgPV1— Alex Shaw (@alexshawsport) March 9, 2019
Just when you think Italian rugby had turned a corner…… 57 points and England in 3rd gear. Definitely think a relegation/promotion system has to be brought into place. For me, it would make the @SixNationsRugby an even better tournament than it already is 🤔— Stephen Ferris (@StephenFerris6) March 9, 2019
