Match Commentary

83'Tom Hamilton at the City of Manchester Stadium writes: "Hat-tricks from Nick Easter and Jack Nowell gave England reason to break into the slightest of smiles after what has been a torrid World Cup. As Swing, Low rang out at the end of the match, England had achieved what they set out to in the north of England - the desire to put on a show - but now comes the awkward post-mortem as to why this game effectively meant nothing in the big, wide scheme of things. Alongside Nowell and Easter, Henry Slade was fantastic at outside centre while Danny Care bossed the breakdown superbly. They mustered 10 tries in the end - the last being a penalty try - as they finished on a winning note."
