However, it is still a 13th consecutive Six Nations defeat for the Azzurri.

But the Ford-Farrell axis combined again to bring England's fifth try with 11 minutes remaining.

'(A replacement is) on the Batphone mate.

"Our scrum and line-out was absolutely first-class".

England, who have won all 24 games against Italy, lost scrumhalf Ben Youngs in the first half when he suffered a knee injury.

Italy were given time to catch their breath during a lengthy delay as Youngs was treated before being carted off with a knee injury, but they were caught cold when the rapid Watson darted away for a second score.

England's Owen Farrell on the charge. Remember to update your bookmarks. The spotlight is clearly on us to get better. The 23-year-old Exeter Chiefs No 8 shone spectacularly in the Eternal City. We know we're off in certain areas and the progress we need to make.

Farrell again missed, this time sending his kick wide of the left.

When Simmonds secured the English bonus point with an arrowed run, you could have been forgiven for thinking the Italian fight would cease.

"Sam's a good young lad with a great set of skills". For some people if may be texting them, other people it may be giving them a bit of a shouting, other people it is giving them that confidence and that love. He's a different sort of number eight.

Respite was brief. While Italy can bide their time and eventually eke out an opening, England can be relentless when the mood takes them.

"We picked our best 23", Jones said "We had some really good training sessions and we want to be ruthless and brutal on Sunday". So when Italy were on the hustle in the second half, Jones simply nodded to the bench and had George Kruis, Jonathan Joseph and Jack Nowell injected into proceedings.

'He's fitted into the team well.

The champions exploded out of the blocks by crossing twice through Anthony Watson inside the opening 10 minutes, but the overwhelming win their early onslaught appeared to signpost only materialised in the closing stages.

Jones refused to be drawn on Saturday's fixture with Wales, who stunned Scotland with a commanding victory in Cardiff over the weekend.

'He got the Maserati out of the car park today, ' he added.

The match will be the first time Te'o has played since October, with the New Zealand-born rugby league convert partnering Owen Farrell in the centres.

'That was massively positive, ' he said.

As soon as play resumed after the long hold-up for the injury to Youngs, England produced a replica move for Watson to cross for his second. There was a big crowd in Rome, the sun was shining and everyone was enjoying themselves and were excited. It was known as 'The Fox', with Italy's defence refusing to compete for the ball after a tackle and, in essence, removing the offside line that allowed scrum-half Eduordo Gori to stand between the half-backs and prevent any clean, quick ball.

They offered far more than in many of the previous encounters but their defence was a colander and England exploited it ruthlessly.

"Before, unfortunately, we never quite managed to get there". There was some lovely ball movement.

The English quality eventually told, with a flurry of late tries painting a picture the Italians would be proud of. "Conor O'Shea is doing a great job coaching them and it was a good tough game of rugby and we ran away with it in the end".
