The final 10 minutes of the first half in England’s Super Saturday clash with Italy were heated with both sets of players fronting up at Stadio Olimpico.
The score was at 5-10 to England when the Italians found a surge of energy after Jonny Hill was sent to the sin bin and the hosts began to rub England up the wrong way.
This is… interesting.
Italy loving it, very close to a second try!
England looking frustrated. #ITAvENG
