England primed to cope with gruelling four-day turnaround, says Jones

The USA, the last team to make their debut in this Rugby World Cup, were also the first to have a man sent off and Gold's pre-match prediction that his team was facing a severe test against the 2003 World Cup winners proved correct.

England have maintained their 100% record at this year's Rugby World Cup after thrashing US 45-7 this morning in Kobe. ITV returns to normal scheduling at 2pm.

"NOT HAPPY, Loose Women....you should be broadcasting on ITV2 like you used to when the racing was on", one frustrated viewers moaned. "Bittersweet is probably the best way to sum up that World Cup".

England won the first encounter 34-6 and repeated the feat four years later with a 37-9 scoreline.

"I know they've been down in Okinawa and they've had a two-week prep, so they're going to come out all guns blazing", the England coach was quoted as saying by The Guardian. "It's more about what happens with the team".

The Eagles' scrum certainly wasn't at all helped by the early loss of prop David Ainuu to injury after just four minutes, as referee Nic Berry was repeatedly left with little option but to reward dominance that saw the England forwards march over the top of their opponents on multiple occasions.

USA captain Blaine Scully said that while the team were disappointed in the performance it was what they did next that was important.

Also, a spokeswoman for the director said that to her knowledge Maguire had not threatened to quit, according to the Post . Trump has previously referred to CrowdStrike as a Ukrainian company.

And three minutes later England had their first try. "We're not better than England but we're a better rugby team than that".

U.S. flanker John Quill was sent off in the 70th minute for a shoulder-charge to the head of Owen Farrell but the Americans never gave up and replacement Bryce Campbell finally got them on the scoreboard after the final gong.

"It was a big fright".

"In 2007, South Africa against Tonga, we were lucky to beat them". "The future of the youngsters in the grassroots levels for Rugby Canada was at stake in that game".

"I think we're about to barbecue part of his nose - I think someone has found it on the field!" said Jones, who reported a clean bill of health following the game.

"How do you prepare in a short time?"

The teams have played each other at the World Cup three times-in 1987, 1991 and 2007.

Another veteran of the team, Hubert Buydens, is 38 and Canada's third oldest player beyond that of Spencer McTavish and Mark Cardinal. England scored two tries from the rolling maul, after Ford had opened the scoring by running between to USA defenders on five minutes, and it remained a powerful weapon throughout.
