England got off to a dream start on their road to the Rugby World Cup by defeating Wales 33-19, ending their opponents’ historic 14-match winning streak in the process, but a shoulder injury suffered by standout flanker Tom Curry cast a shadow over the impressive victory.

The victory was made all the more impressive given it was an experimental England side that knocked off a full-strength Wales, which featured 12 of the Grand Slam heroes that started in the Six Nations win over Eddie Jones’s side last February.

Meet this unbelievable component!!
