England hit on their World Cup straps with a seven-try demolition of the USA to ensure it is two bonus-point wins out of 2.
Billy Vunipola and Luke Cowan-Dickie scored first-half attempts after skipper George Ford went under the posts.
Four in the second half – 2 in Joe Cokanasiga, one apiece – were also a fitting reward for a much-improved performance in humidity and the heat of Kobe.
At a World Cup becoming characterized by safe tackling technique, US flanker John Quill was shipped off for a shoulder control on replacement Owen Farrell.
However, Piers Francis to, the guy Farrell had come on, may himself face retrospective action after a questionable challenge in the game’s opening moments.
England’s set-piece is dominant unable to deal at the scrum when the maul was put by their opponents, or to find an answer.
Tougher tests lie in the form of both France and Argentina but England will travel this weekend at disposition.
Eddie Jones had guaranteed his team delivered and a start, Ford slicing through a stretched defence on the angle – following Vunipola’s initial run and Francis’s foray down the left to touch down under the posts.
Four penalties surrendered at the first 15 minutes slowed down the fee, World Cup debutant Willie Heinz over-exuberant and indisciplined and then spilling the ball with England three yards outside.
However, Cowan-Dickie moved to Tom Curry with Ford yanking the strings England kicked off a penalty into the corner and Vunipola rumbled over in the back of the maul.
The US package splintered at the set-piece, and another maul sent in to get the right tries down Cowan-Dickie after off a scrum penalty was kicked by Ford in touch.
And England had their fourth try just before the interval since Ford’s adorable chip was assembled by Jonathan Joseph, Cokanasiga not able to gather the centre’s pass with the line beckoning.
Their 19-0 half-time direct proved to be England with 66 percent of ownership a fair reflection of the balance of electricity and 76% territory.
Jones took off Vunipola, Dan Cole and Joe Marler at the break with Kyle Sinckler Mark Wilson and Ellis Genge coming to the fray.
Sinckler and Wilson combined in midfield prior to Cokanasinga collapsed over before Joseph’s dummy foxed the centre spinning and stepping to over two metres, the staying cover.
On came Courtney Lawes and Farrell, Ben Youngs, Jones trying to manage the workload on his players.
Winger McConnochie blew one opening when he chose to step in rather than pin his ears back for the corner , but the bolter to England’s World Cup squad left moments later as he wrapped in after yet another scrum penalty ran.
Ludlum was another who had been nowhere close to this team six months back however his energetic performance was capped with a try of his own after Ford’s sidestep down the left.
And Cokanasiga caught his second and the seventh after a storming 70-metre rush of England from Genge, who abandoned defenders.
Quill was dismissed by Faith Nic Berry because of his charge on Farrell prior to a late consolation rating from Bryce Campbell using the clock red.
A attempt and 10 points out of the tee capped a certain display at night making the most of the time given him by his dominant bunch.
England head coach Eddie Jones:”The conditions have been such it was similar to a moist weather game but we found our rhythm and rhythm really well in the second half. We made some managing mistakes but we will improve.
“They had 14 players in the line and it was hard to have a numerical advantage. Once we began to play through them we had been much better”
England World Cup winner Matt Dawson on Radio 5 Live:”The highlight for me was the subject. I believe there were of the It is in stark contrast and the staff required to proceed.
“If they could get anywhere near four or five penalties against Argentina, they will blow them off. Should they keep progressing like that, they are going to be a difficult team to beat.”
