Cape Town - England scored 10 tries in a 73-12 (half-time 45-5) annihilation of the Barbarians at Twickenham on Sunday.

Right wing Christian Wade scored a hat-trick in a disappointingly one-sided clash which promised much, especially after the Barbarians had beaten Ireland 22-21 earlier in the week.

It was England's biggest ever win over the BaaBaas, eclipsing the 57-26 victory in May 2012.
