The 1014 Rugby watch the Italy v England match live on YouTube and Facebook.

Check out the reactions and insights from The Shed with Gareth and Steven. The clinical play of England was not really a surprise, but what was is how much they have improved since last year. And Italy, well Italy played very well and impressed across the field.

The possession and action areas are fairly evenly spread. This was a great test for both sides. Yes, Italy would have wanted to win, but they learned a lot and can take a lot of confidence from this match.

Owen Farrell had a bit of an off day with the boot, particularly from out wide on the right. Is this something that will concern Eddie Jones? Or is it just one of those days?
