The England Rugby team brought their World Cup preparations to a winning end after a lively second‑half performance to beat Italy 37-0 in Newcastle.

Three Owen Farrell penalties gave the hosts a 9‑0 lead following a lackluster first half  but a Ben Youngs' try brought the match to life after the break.

Centre Joe Marchant, prop Ellis Genge and Anthony Watson scored three more tries to cap off an impressive second half display.

England take on Tonga in their opening pool match of the Rugby World at 10.15pm on the 22nd of this month.
