England's World Cup preparations began with a comprehensive 33‑19 victory at Twickenham this morning that ended Wales' 14‑Test winning run.
An experimental England team established a healthy 24‑7 lead through tries by Billy Vunipola, Joe Cokanasiga and Luke Cowan‑Dickie that survived touchdowns from George North and Wyn Jones.
Wales have not won at Twickenham since the last World Cup and looked like never ending that run to spoil the occasion of skipper Alun Wyn Jones becoming his nation's most capped player.
With this loss, Wales goes back to second place with 89.96 points while the All Blacks jumped up to number one spot again with 91.54 points.
England is pooled Tonga, France, Argentina and USA.
The Rugby World Cup will be held from the 20th of September to the 2nd of November.
