England hit on a seven-try demolition of the USA against their World Cup straps to ensure it is 2 wins from 2.
Luke Cowan-Dickie and billy Vunipola scored tries following skipper George Ford went under the posts.
Four in the second half – two from Lewis Ludlum and latecomers Ruaridh McConnochie from Joe Cokanasiga – were also a reward for a performance from humidity and the heat of Kobe.
US flanker John Quill was shipped off to replacement Owen Farrell, the England talisman lucky to not suffer serious injury At a World Cup becoming characterized by handling procedure.
But Piers Francis for, the man Farrell’d come on, will himself confront retrospective action after a struggle in this game’s opening minutes.
England’s set-piece was dominant not able to cope at the scrum when the maul was set by their competitions, or to find an answer.
Tougher tests lie ahead in the shape of both Argentina and France but England will travel this weekend in mood.
Eddie Jones had promised his team sent and a start, Ford slicing over the angle through a stretched defence – following the foray of Francis and Vunipola’s initial run down the left to touch down under the posts.
Four penalties surrendered from the first 15 minutes then piled the ball forward three yards out slowed World Cup debutant Willie Heinz indisciplined and over-exuberant, the fee at a scrum and ruck.
However, Cowan-Dickie went to Tom Curry in the Rear of this line-out with Ford pulling on the strings England kicked a penalty into the corner and Vunipola rumbled over at the Rear of the maul.
The US pack splintered at the set-piece, also afterwards Ford kicked off a scrum penalty in touch, another maul sent Cowan-Dickie in to get a replica attempt the right.
And England had their fourth attempt just before the period as Ford chip was gathered by Jonathan Joseph, Cokanasiga to collect the pass of the centre .
Their 19-0 half-time direct proved to be a honest reflection of their balance of power, England with 66% of ownership and 76% territory.
Jones took off Vunipola, Dan Cole and Joe Marler in the rest with Kyle Sinckler Mark Wilson and Ellis Genge coming to the fray.
Wilson and sinckler combined in midfield until Cokanasinga dropped over before Joseph’s dummy foxed the centre spinning and stepping to two metres, the cover.
On came Farrell Youngs and Courtney Lawes, Jones attempting to handle the workload on his players together with the brief turnaround between games.
Winger McConnochie blew one opening after he chose to measure in rather than pin his ears back but the overdue bolter to England’s World Cup squad left amends minutes later as he rolled in after England conducted yet another scrum punishment.
Ludlum was another who was nowhere close to this team six months back his performance was capped after Ford’s sidestep with a try of his own down the abandoned.
And Cokanasiga grabbed England’s seventh after a storming 70-metre jog and his second from Genge, who abandoned white-shirted defenders.
Australian referee Nic Berry for his charge on Farrell ignored quill from Bryce Campbell using the clock crimson prior to a late consolation score.
10 points out of the tee and A smart try a confident display, England’s skipper for the night making the most of the time by his pack that was dominant.
England head coach Eddie Jones:”The conditions have been such it was like a moist weather match but we found our rhythm and tempo really well in the next half. Some managing mistakes were left by us but we will improve.
“They had 14 players in the line and it had been hard to receive a numerical advantage. As soon as we started to play through them we were much better”
England World Cup winner Matt Dawson on Radio 5 Live:”The highlight for me was that the discipline. I believe there were only 3 penalties, which were in the first halfof the It is in stark contrast to where they had been last week and the team required to proceed.
“If they can get anywhere near four or five penalties from Argentinathey will blow them away. If they continue progressing like this, they will be a difficult team to beat.”
