England continues their bud to win the 2019 Guinness Six Nations after a comprehensive win against Italy – but who stood out for both sides for the right and wrong reasons?
ENGLAND: Manu Tuilagi – Boom. The powerhouse was at his rampaging best; scoring two tries, beating five defencers and making 77 metres from his eight carries. There was just no stopping the Leicester centre. Joe Cokanasiga was also electric with Sir Clive Woodward comparing the speedster to Jonah Lomu.
ITALY: Tommaso Allan – He is a class number 10. Solid of the kicking tee and unlocked the England defence superbly for his try. Also put in a good shift in defence with some solid tackling.
Tommaso Allan is a class 10, imagine if he was in a world class team.— Max Henderson (@MaxyHendo) March 9, 2019
