Englands Italian Job

The pints were flowing as students gathered in the Charles’ on Sunday afternoon to cheer on England rugby in what proved ultimately to be a one-sided encounter with the Italians. In their first competitive fixture in the post-Martin Johnson era they ran out comprehensive winners, 50-9. The remodelled England side saw Jason Robinson, in his first appearance as centre, score three tries.

England’s other points came from Balshaw, Grayson, Jones and Lewsey.
