KOBE – Two games, two bonus-point wins, no major injuries -- England are right where they need to be at the World Cup, coach Eddie Jones said on Thursday after his side's seven-try win over the United States.
Jones had made 10 changes to the starting 15 that beat Tonga 35-3 in the Pool C opener on Sunday and while they did not fire on all cylinders against the Americans, the gulf in class was obvious, England running out 45-7 winners.
George Ford, Billy Vunipola, Luke Cowan-Dickie, Ruaridh McConnochie, Lewis Ludlam and a double from Joe Cokanasiga put England out of sight before the United States claimed a consolation score through Bryce Campbell after the final gong.
While England are in a good position in Pool C, there are tougher tests ahead, said Jones, with Argentina and France their final two group opponents.
"Pleased where we are, after two games was have 10 points, conceded one try," Jones told a news conference.
