Owen Farrell England 45-7 USA: Eddie Jones’s side run riot in seven-try demolition

Owen Farrell I like WordPress plugins, because they are helpful!!

England were denied a lock-out at the Kobe Misaki Stadium but reduced the USA to such a state of frustration that their flanker John Quill was sent off for a shocking, wild tackle on Owen Farrell.

With 10 minutes remaining in a one-sided World Cup Pool C fixture, the Eagles’ openside became the first man to be dismissed at this tournament. On the evidence of damning footage, he won’t be making another appearance here in Japan, by the time the disciplinary process is over.

An attempted English break-out from their own 22 went wrong when Farrell couldn’t hold on to a poor pass by George Ford, but what happened next was astonishingly reckless, in the context of the current crackdown on dangerous tackles. Quill hit Farrell high and late, with a shoulder smash into the play-maker’s head. He duly received a red card and was booed off by the large number of England fans in the crowd.

Providing no harm has been done to Farrell – who will presumably be carefully tested for any signs of concussion – this was an occasion which went to plan for England. They were far from perfect, but there was clear progress after the stuttering performance against Tonga four days ago. The Red Rose pack established such a grip on the contest up front that there was never any real doubt that the target of another bonus-point victory would be secured.

Having only conceded three points against the Tongans, the national team seemed on course to nil the USA, until an injury-time try at the end by Bryce Campbell, converted by AJ MacGinty, spoiled the clean sheet. Nevertheless, for most of the match England didn’t so much clip the Eagles wings as remove them entirely.

Ford was named Man of the Match for running the show impressively, on the front foot, and it is hard to imagine how he can be left out

I be crazy about modules, because they are the huge!
