By Ed Carruthers

Returning from his ban, Owen Farrell has expressed his delight to once again be back in the England starting team sheeet.

Speaking after the game, the fly-half said: ‘Enjoyable yeah. It’s always enjoyable to pull on an England shirt but to do it in the way today – it was good fun.

‘We went a good few minutes without anything Some good intent and I thought our attitude was great throughout.

He added: ‘We want to keep progressing and be a better team.’

At the end of the match all three of George Ford, Marcus Smith and Farrell were on the field.

It was an interesting move from Borthwick, with Farrell lauding his two team-mates.

Farrell: ‘There’s two good players you’re talking about there and when you get good players on the pitch there’s always good communitcation. The whole team has an attitude towards us improving and hopefully that showed today.’

Arundell: 'I can't believe it!'

By Ed Carruthers

Henry Arundell has claimed his five-try performance was ‘surreal’ following England’s 71-0 win against Chile.

Speaking to ITV he said: ‘I cant believe it to be honest. A bit surreal. The win shows real team performance and aspirations to attack. We want to score tries.’

England played with the ball in hand tonight and Arundel was quizzed on whether much has changed on England’s game plan following their win against Japan.

‘I wouldn’t say its changed much. It depends on the team we’re playing. Steve says find a way to win and that’s what we did today,’ he said.

Farrell converts and cuts the deficit to Jonny Wilkinson’s record to just one point.

England's quality out wide is superb

By Ed Carruthers

Could we see Smith and Arundell starting at wing and full-back against Samoa?

Dave Ribbans has also put his hand up with a fantastic performance, commanding the lineout, but also showing he has an engine, working relentlessly around the park all game.


By Ed Carruthers

It’s another try and it’s the full-back, Smith, who gets his second.

Questions were asked of his ability to play at 15 today, but the Harlequins fly-half has shown his versatility today and brilliant skills combining with a brilliannt one-two with Ben Youngs, before cutting a beautiful line to get his second of the day.

Farrell slots the conversion, putting himself three points shy of Jonny Wilkinsons’ record.

England 64-0 Chile


By Ed Carruthers

Henry Arundell’s dream debut continues!

He’s got his fifth and will join an exclusive club of Josh Lewsey, Chris Latham and Marc Ellis (scored six vs Japan in 1995) to score five or more in a Rugby World Cup match.

It’s a great move from England who capitalise from their pressure on Chile, spreading the ball wide, with Smith hitting the gap before drawing the man and sending his pass wide to Arundell.

England defend well and counter!

By Ed Carruthers

A solid scrum inside their 22 sees England return an attack to Chile.

They boot down field surrendering possesion to the Chileans, but it’s a good bit of play from England who apply the pressure to win the ball back.

They send the ball wide to the right and aren’t giving up on adding to the score here!

Arundell dazzles in Lille

By Ed Carruthers

The 20-year-old could not have asked for a better World Cup debut!

He’s now the joint-top try scorer at the tournament, having only made one appearance!


By Ed Carruthers

Henry Arundell is having a dream World Cup debut!

He gets his fourth try thanks to a lovely pass out wide from Ford, breaking the line to chip over the Chile full-back.

The bounce isn’t kind and he still has a little bit of work to do to reach high and pluck the ball out of the air, dotting down with an excellent bit of skill.

England 52-0 Chile

Ford, Farrell, Smith – A creative combination

By Ed Carruthers

England have three play makers on the field right now.

It’ll be interesting to see how they gel in the back line.

Smith will provide plenty of pace out wide with Ford and Farrell sitting in the middle in the play-maker positions.

The trio have been on the field for a few minutes now, but England haven’t really had much of the ball in what’s been a scrappy five mintues.

Chile have been pinned back on their try line but they’ve recovered some ground with a lineout just off the half-way line here.

More subs for England

By Ed Carruthers

Theo Dan receives a standing ovation as he is replaced by Will Stuart.

Jack Walker comes on for Kyle Sinkler in the front row.

Three fly-halves on the field?!

By Ed Carruthers

Does this mean we’ll see Ford and Farrell start together at 10 and 12 in England’s game against Samoa next week?

Here comes George Ford!

By Ed Carruthers

Ben Youngs has replaced Danny Care.

George Ford is also on the field now too.

TRY! Arundell gets his hat-trick!

By Ed Carruthers

England have only kicked thirteen times today!

It shows, with Borthwick’s side showing some excellent handling skills in midfield to keep the ball alive through the tackle.

The ball gets kicked through by Daly to the Chilean winger with Arundell taking advantage of a fumble to reclaim the ball and cross for his third try.

Farrell kicks the conversion to make it 45-0 to England.

TRY! Dan gets his second!

By Ed Carruthers

Could we have a couple of hat-tricks on the cards here?

Dan throws in at the lineout, with Ribbans taking the ball in the air.

A maul forms around him and England taking advantage of the extra numbers to drive over the line, with Dan claiming his second.


Yellow card!

By Ed Carruthers

… And it seeems the referee will send Chile down to 14 men, sending Dittus to the sin bin for collapsing the maul.

England go to the corner again!

Another penalty England

By Ed Carruthers

Dan throws in at the lineout and Chile immediately collapse the maul.

Jaco Peyper could give a card here…

We're back underway!

By Ed Carruthers

Farrell edges closer to Wilkinson's record

By Ed Carruthers

For context, the next closest points scorer is Paul Grayson on 400, with George Ford fifth in the rankings with 365 points.

'It's nice to see what we've got in that part of the locker' – Jonny Wilkinson

By Ed Carruthers

England barely kicked the ball during that first half, and Jonny Wilkinson has lauded England’s attacking threat so far.

England have looked good with the ball in hand and Jonny Wilkinson says its refreshing to see Steve Borthwick’s side chucking it about

‘It’s nice to see what we’ve got in that part of the locker’, Wilkinson told ITV.

England’s handling has impressed, but they have conceded a few handling errors, perhaps more than Borthwick may want.

HT: Farrell converts to put England 31 points ahead

By Ed Carruthers

Owen Farrell makes the kick from Smith’s try putting England 31 points up at the break.

While Chile have been exciting at points during the first 40 minutes with the ball in hand, they’ve struggled to fend off England’s attack has looked very fluid so far.

While it’s to be expected, considering England’s experience at the top level of the game, they’ve made 378 metres so far amassing 81 carries to Chile’s 34.

They’ve dominated with the ball in hand with Arundell scoring twice and Rodd and Dan crashing over for their first tries in an England shirt.

Borthwick’s side are certainly out to play a different game this week too.

They’ve had several penalties under the posts and in kickable positions but have opted to keep the ball in play, opting for the scrum and to tap instead.

They’ve kicked noticeably less too – showing their class with the ball in hand.

Smith wrapped up a dominant first half tearing through the Chile defence, turning on the after burners to touch down in the left corner.

But it was a sluggish start for England – who took 21 minutes to get on the score sheet.

Steve Borthwick will no doubt be hoping for a faster start in the second term.

TRY! That's FIVE!

By Ed Carruthers

England clear their lines off a scrum in their own half and they manage to recover the ball out of nothing.

George Martin recovers off a speculative offload and the backs sniff out an opportunity to attack.

Farrell gets the ball on the left hand side and delivers the ball to Smith who grubbers through, turning on the after burners to touch down for their fifth try of the game.

TRY! Arundell gets his second!

By Ed Carruthers

It’s almost identical to his try earlier, with England tapping from a penalty in front of the posts, with Farrell swinging the ball out wide again.

A miss-pass finds Arundell on the wing who, as before dots down in then corner.

England 17-0 Chile

England on the ascendency now

By Ed Carruthers

Much conversation this week has revolved around how Marcus Smith will fare at full-back.

He’s looked excellent so far with the ball in hand utilising his pace to carry England into the Chile 22.

There’s been a lot less kicking from England so far this week and it’s showing! They’re throwing the ball around very well here!

They’ve found themselves knocking on the door again with a penalty just in front of the posts…

Theo Dan crosses the whitewash!

By Ed Carruthers

England break the deadlock!

By Ed Carruthers

England’s win the scrum under the posts and send the ball out right to Farrell.

Despite his brilliance with the ball in hand the England captain can’t slot the conversion.

England 5-0 Chile


By Ed Carruthers


By Ed Carruthers

It looked like the Ollie Lawrence was taken out in the air there, jumping to catch the ball!

But the referee waves play on, deciding it was a rugby incident.

England ultimately win a penalty under the posts with Chile being offside in defence, and opt for the scrum!

Ugo Monye: 'The attacking accuracy hasn't been there for England'

By Ed Carruthers

England have had plenty of the ball but they’ve squandered chances and given Chile a few golden opportunities.

They look the stronger team but should be up by a few points already.

Chile kick back at England pinning them back inside their own half but England recover with Elliot Daly running through to bring England back into Chile’s half.

The Red Rose have a line out inside Chile’s 22.

What a start!

By Ed Carruthers

Both sides are playing some excellent rugby!

An enthralling start with england on the attack again.

Billy Vunipola crashes through the midfield off the back of a line-out with England now back in Chile’s 22.

But they’ve lost it!

Excellent counter rucking from Chile who once again deny England a score after breaking into their danger zone.

Defesively, Chile have been excellent so far, with England failing to seecure the ball in the contact.

But the score remains 0-0 after 14 minutes.

Here come Chile!

By Ed Carruthers

England on red alert here! Chile are on the advance!

The Chileans looked dangerous with the ball in hand there chucking it around with some fantastic offloading play down the right channel.

England manage to turn the ball over and breathe a sigh of releif, with Chile dangerously breaking through deep into the England 22.

It’s been an all action 10 minutes so far Stade Pierre-Mauroy!

England come close! But narrowly miss out!

By Ed Carruthers

Borthwick’s men win the ball off the scrum and send it wide.

The backs are streetched out here with farrell throwing long out to Lawrence who passes to Smith, who draws the man before sending the ball to Malins on the wing.

But the pass is just over his head and goes out of play! Fine margins for England so far…

England looking good with the ball in hand!

By Ed Carruthers

Three minutes gone her in Lille and England are looking great on the ball.

Henry Arundell’s got his hands on the ball on the wing while Danny Care’s been at his usual self sniping around the fringes.

They revceive a penalty in the middle of the park and nudge a kick to the corner for a line-out.

England recover the ball of the top of the set piece, with Care throwing out wide. Marcus Smith picks up the ball in midfield and grubbers the ball through to Daly on the wing, but Chile recover and dot down for a five metre scrum on the far side.


Kick off!

By Ed Carruthers

1′ It’s Farrell to start and he boots the ball long into the Chile 22.

They recover the ball but boot back to England who have sparked an attack down the left channel.

A good start for England, with Smith transferring the ball through the hands to the far side of the pitch.

Chile knock on in a tackle on Ollie Lawrence so we’ll have our first scrum!

Woodward – 'Can Care and Farrell get the pace of the game up?'

By Ed Carruthers

Danny Care and Owen Farrell will re-unite their partnership at No 9 and No 10 for England this afternoon.

England fans no doubt will be hoping the team will play more running rugby this week and Farrell and Care will be key in initiating those attacks.

With Smith at 15 too, and Arundell and Malins on the wings, England have plenty of options here to play the ball through the hands.

Here come the anthems and it’s god save the king first…

Chile's road to the World Cup

By Ed Carruthers

Chile secured a berth in the 2023 Rugby World Cup with a dramatic playoff win against the USA in the summer of 2022.

They won a 52-51 aggregate two-legged play-off, with a penalty from Santiago Videla, who starts today, booking their place in the tournament.

It is the first time the side have participated in the tournament in their history!

But they are yet to pick up their first win at the tournament, having suffered a 43-10 loss to Samoa in their last outing before a 42-12 defeat by Japan before that.

Borthwick brings in the young stars

By Ed Carruthers

Precocious prodigy Marcus Smith came on to play at full-back in the dying embers of England’s win against Japan.

Smith looked good coming through from the back, and during his time on the field, he impressed coming through from the back, setting up several attacking moves, while giving the side a little more creativity in attack.

He’ll come into the side for his first ever professional start at 15 and will hope to add a little more pace through the back.

He’ll be flanked in the back three by Max Malins and Henry Arundell, two exciting players that are great ball carriers and are yet to get a start during the tournament so far.

It will be particularly interesting to see how Arundell gets on today especially since being given the backing of MailSport columnist Clive Woodward…

RECAP: England beat Japan to go top of Pool D

By Ed Carruthers

Sunday’s victory against Japan saw England shore up their standing at the top of Pool D.

But it was not a pretty win. Borthwick siad after the match that he was impressed with how England found a way to win, but it was not the most inspiring performance.

England clicked in the final quarter of the match, with Lewis Ludlam crashing over in the first half to secure the first try.

George Ford continued his form with the boot, kicking 14 points, with a header from Joe Marler teeing up Courtney Lawes for a bizarre try in the 56th minute.

Ford would kick a weaker foot crossfield kick to put Freddie Steward in for their third try of the match, before Joe Marchant crossed the line for the bonus point in the last play of the game.

Woodward and Dallaglio hit back at claims England are playing 'repulsive rugby'

By Ed Carruthers

Steve Borthwick’s side were slammed in the week for playing a very heavy kicking game – with former France back row Olivier Magne slamming the team of playing ‘repulsive rugby’.

England kicked heavily during their win against Japan, with many online criticising the side for not using the ball in hand when they had possession.

Magne claimed: ‘This English team is ugly! No desire, no joy, no consistency… It’s repulsive rugby.’

Steve Borthwick defended his side after the match claiming: ‘I think ultimately, players find a way and that’s the important thing,’ said Borthwick. ‘In these conditions, it was challenging.’

But Sir Clive Woodward and Lawrence Dallaglio, with the 2003 winning coach hitting slamming the comments.

‘I think in world cups winning is everything,’ Woodward said on the comments. ‘With respect to Magne, how many world cups have France won?’

Dallaglio said: ‘I think what he’s saying is that we’re kicking too much. I don’t like calling it winning rugby – I don’t like that because rugby is a beautiful game.’

Chile make 10 changes from Samoa loss

By Ed Carruthers

Chile have also made several changes for the match.

Borthwick has changed his front row too with Bevan Rodd, Theo Dan and Kyle Sinckler coming in.

Farrell back in action

By Ed Carruthers

After receiving a four-game ban after England’s second Rugby World Cup warm up match, Owen Farrell is back in action for Steve Borthwick’s side today.

He comes in at fly-half for George Ford today, but will he be the man to leade England to victory?
