  • Injuries overshadow start to Six Nations

Jack Nowell labelled Sam Simmonds "a freak" after his brilliant Six Nations debut on Sunday, with the No 8 taking full advantage of England's back-row injury problems to bag his first two tries in global rugby in the 46-15 defeat of Italy.

"I'm happy. It's good that we built through the game and got better and better", said Farrell after his 58th England cap.

England were two tries up inside the opening 15 minutes thanks to a double from Anthony Watson, before Tommaso Benvenuti completed a brilliantly worked team try for the hosts.

Chris Robshaw has recovered from a back injury and will start at openside flanker, while Brown is OK after blurred vision to start at fullback, and Itoje is over a minor hip problem to form a second-row partnership with Joe Launchbury.

Te'o's only previous England start was also against Italy a year ago when they they struggled to deal with the Italians' surprise "no ruck" tactics before coming from behind at halftime to emerge 36-15 winners.

Farrell's kick rebounded off the right post.

Of the 30 shares that make up the Sensex, 27 ended with losses, led by Bajaj Auto and Bharti Airtel. The BSE Smallcap index fell 4.65% to 17,847.53, the most since November 2016.

Youngs went down with what looked like a nasty knee injury after his left leg appeared to get trapped in the ruck.

He received several minutes of treatment before being taken off on a stretcher on a golf cart to sympathetic applause from more than 61,000 fans at the Stadio Olimpico.

Replacement Danny Care collected from the base of the scrum and fed another swift English attack, with Watson beating three blue shirts before an excellent touchdown in the corner.

There was to be no repeat this time around and Italy lost its 13th successive Six Nations match.

As soon as play resumed after the long hold-up for the injury to Youngs, England produced a replica move for Watson to cross for his second.

The Azzurri managed to reduce the deficit midway through the half.

Italy thought they had hit back with a try from Boni but his score was ruled out on video review for a forward pass by Allan. And Italy shaved a further three points back before the interval courtesy of Allan's boot after another venture into England territory. With Italy's defence at sixes and sevens, Farrell scooted through a big hole to score his sixth try in 54 Tests.

Farrell picked a gap and skinned Matteo Minozzi for his touchdown but the gap was just 17-10 at the break.

In that space of time England scored a couple of classic first-phase tries.

Italy's ongoing endeavour was rewarded when Mattia Bellini touched down after England were exposed out wide for a second time.

England have won all 23 of their previous meetings with Italy, averaging 40 points a game, though they had something of a scare at Twickenham past year when they struggled to deal with the Italians' surprise "no ruck" tactics before coming from behind at halftime to emerge 36-15 winners.
