England looking a bit better. 
Jonny May is a good finisher and very effective on the wing.

As is Watson

Cowan Dickie is a better hooker than much hyped Jamie George

I hate complaining about the ref but the Italians where really hard done by the ref in that match.

The first two tries England scored should of been ruled out due to clear knock on. Granted the first knock on was several phases before the try but it was extremely clear and obvious, don't know how it wasn't spotted.

Third and fourth English tries could have been ruled out again. The first for jumping out of a tackle and the fourth for a late tackle by Owen Farrell.

Ref also missed other stuff as well, don't think he will be refereeing another international game for a while.

England still don't look up to speed and will be disappointed with the score-line, must be just a lack of game time that affecting some of their players. Overall encouraging stuff from Italy. Attack wise this is the best I've seen them, good energy levels, no late game collapse, still let down by rather aimless kicking and at times poor decision making but Franco Smith really looks like he has something to work with here.
