England produced a dominant performance as they continued their preparations for the World Cup by hammering Ireland.
Eddie Jones’s side ran in eight tries at Twickenham to register their largest winning margin against the visitors.
Here’s how social media reacted…
Well played @EnglandRugby, solid performances across the board! Manu needs to stay at 13 imo. 9 is an issue, thought Heinz did well for us but would like a Spencer or Robson in there somewhere. Team will be pretty happy all round though. Ire on the other hand 😳— mike tindall (@miketindall13) August 24, 2019
hard to imagine a worse preparation for the world cup than this hammering by England today, good as England surely are. #ENGvIRE Question that has to be asked of Joe Schmidt: if Rory Best wasn't his captain would he be his hooker? Rot started in the line-outs.— Matt Cooper (@cooper_m) August 24, 2019
42 – Ireland's 42 point defeat is the fourth heaviest in their Test history, their three heavier defeats all came against New Zealand, most recently in 2012 (0-60). Slump.— OptaJonny (@OptaJonny) August 24, 2019

36-10 to England. We're starting to think we might not win the World Cup after all 😬 #ENGvIRE— Balls.ie (@ballsdotie) August 24, 2019

Another masterpiece by Joe Schmidt. Ireland go into the World Cup as underdogs, just how we like it.
