England put last week's Scotland defeat behind them with a six-try 41-18 Six Nations victory over Italy at Twickenham on Saturday as Anthony Watson scored two tries and Jonny May claimed a memorable one with an astonishing, acrobatic leap.
Italy took a shock second-minute lead with a try by Monty Ioane but England eventually took control with tries by Johnny Hill, Watson and, via an American-football style dive over a defender, May.
The hugely impressive Watson got his second via a long-range interception then flanker Jack Willis came off the bench to score, before being carried off on a stretcher soon after with a serious-looking knee injury.
