80'
Full Time
So, it's a very handsome win for Lancaster's men, but not quite enough to surpass Ireland's tremendous points difference on "Super Saturday". They now turn to Paris and pray France can do them a favour. Thanks for joining us.

TRY, ENGLAND, TUILAGI! 6-43 The hulking centre simply walks over the top of the Italian midfield to score under the posts. Tommy Allan hadn't a hope.

51'
Yellow Card
And there's a yellow card coming for Bortolami for playing the ball offside inside his 22. England opt for the scrum.

50'

29'
England into the 22 again after good work from Care and Brown. Looking for try number two.

While Lancaster's only change from the side that beat Wales is to promote loosehead Mako Vunipola from the bench in place of Joe Marler, who awaits the birth of his first child. Matt Mullan takes Vunipola's place among the subs.
