International round-up

27 August 2019

Bath Rugby's Joe Cokanasiga and Sam Underhill were both in action for England as they faced Ireland at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday. Francois Louw was also selected for South Africa's 31-man Rugby World Cup squad. Here is how they got on. 


Bath Rugby's Sam Underhill and Joe Cokanasiga produced top drawer performances at Twickenham Stadium as England picked apart a strong Ireland side in their penultimate Rugby World Cup warm-up match. 

Cokanasiga scored two of England's eight tries as Eddie Jones's side ran riot at Twickenham to register their largest winning margin against the visitors.

Ireland crossed first through Jordan Larmour but Joe Cokanasiga, Elliot Daly and Manu Tuilagi all scored as the hosts built a 12-point half-time lead.

England added further tries from Maro Itoje, George Kruis, Tom Curry, Cokanasiga and Luke Cowan-Dickie to round-off a successful performance in the sunny capital on Saturday.
