The Top Performers From England’s Crushing Win Over Italy

England bounced back from their disappointing defeat to Wales last time out by recording a heavy win over Italy at Twickenham on Saturday. 

Eddie Jones’ side crossed the whitewash eight times as they physically dominated their opponents from the first whistle.

The result means that England are still in a decent position to win the championship but results will need to go their way next weekend.

There were a number of impressive performances throughout the 80 minutes and here we take a look at those who posted the highest figures.
