Manu masterclass helps England to big win over Ireland

25 Августа, 2019, 09:25 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion
  • The aerial game and kick-to-compete tactic is something Ireland may be rethinking or adapting according to Murray

Eddie Jones's side ran in eight tries at Twickenham to register their largest winning margin against the visitors.

"What really matters is in four weeks time", said Schmidt.

Only New Zealand have inflicted a heavier defeat on Ireland, who are seeking to bring some momentum into their World Cup campaign following a lacklustre Six Nations.

"It hurts right now", he said.

And to add misfortune to misery, they also came off worse on the injury count as Cian Healy suffered an ankle injury before Conor Murray was withdrawn at half-time having earlier passed a Head Injury Assessment.

For the third consecutive week, England approached a warm-up knowing their opponents could move to the top of the rankings but, after beating and then losing to Wales, they ensured the Grand Slam champions remained at the summit by routing the Irish. "There is a lot left in us and we are still looking forward to playing our best rugby", said Farrell.

Schmidt said there had been a "litany of uncharacteristic errors" and there would be changes for the Wales match although he did not say if World Player of the Year Johnny Sexton would be one of them.

Schmidt has had to keep Sexton on the sidelines after second choice fly-half Joey Carbery injured an ankle in the win over Italy a fortnight ago and gave Ross Byrne the starter's jersey for Saturday's game.

Schmidt said other results in the warm-up matches had shown things could be turned on their head after suffering heavy defeats in the previous match.

"However, it does not happen automatically". There was a Man-of-the-Match performance from Manu Tuilagi, who scored one try and wreaked havoc at every turn, an upbeat state of affairs for the Leicester centre whose career has been injury-wracked.

Jones warned Tuilagi would be even better come their first game in Japan.

"He (Tuilagi) is in a good place, he has a smile on his face makes coffee for everyone except me, I should get my order in earlier", said a grinning Jones.

"His great attribute is everyone likes to play with him". He is about 80 per cent fit and there is a bit to go and when he gets there he will be a handful.
