got off to a perfect start when captain george boyd put them ahead after five minutes. they captain george boyd put them ahead afterfive minutes. they scored captain george boyd put them ahead after five minutes. they scored two more tries to lead 19—0 at the break. after half time they got their fourth try and that all—important their fourth try and that all—importa nt bonus point. their fourth try and that all—important bonus point. and they scored three more tries after that. tries for rory mcconaughey and lewis ludlum. the most notable moments of the night was a horrible no arms tackle like the usa flankerjohn quayle on 0wen farrell. he got a straight red card. refereeing has been a hot topic at the rugby world cup. the statement from world rugby a couple of days ago, referees were not clamping down enough on those sorts of tackles so a straight red card. the usa got a late try to give
them some consolation at the end of a tough night, but an emphatic win for england. let's hear the views of the captain. we are pleased where we are after two games with ten points, we have conceded one try and had two fantastic experiences. tonight, 27,000 people, first major rugby game here for a while, it is a great by game here for a while, it is a great rugby city, great occasion. we are humbled to be part of it and we are ina good humbled to be part of it and we are in a good position. can we play better? yes, and we know we can stop and we need to play better in our next game. how is owen farrell after that hit and anything else to worry about in terms of fitness as a result tonight? no, he is missing pa rt result tonight? no, he is missing part of his nose which is u nfortu nate. part of his nose which is unfortunate. he is married, he has got a child, so he is not looking
out in corby tonight so he will be 0k. out in corby tonight so he will be ok. very convincing win for england. let's get the views of someone who knows all about playing in a world cup, the former england fly—half paul grayson. there was a call, pace and accuracy for england after tonga, which is what they did in the first 20 minutes. they kept the ball alive and that the usa under real genuine pressure which resulted in that george ford stroll to the line. even though the scoreboard did not start then, the second half of the first half england piled on the pressure and encourage a good response. get people talking about positivity and not the negativity of the tonga game. once you make of the red card we saw, and anything to worry about for a piers francis who put ina worry about for a piers francis who put in a big hit in the opening seconds? straight from the kick-off,
he chased hard. he was the first player who got the usa guy, it will be looked at. he might be any spot of bother. whether he will get the three weeks, i don't know. i am not sure whether he forced himself into the reckoning for selection anyway but later on, the referee, the usa red card, that is the textbook. that is what we don't want in the game and he had no option. finally, two games on, what do you assess of england's tournament so far? tonga, not so great, but this showed improvement on that game. not so great, but this showed improvement on that gamem not so great, but this showed improvement on that game. it does, and they have eight days until they play argentina so they have time to decompress a little bit. they have a couple of days off and then positively review that game and build into argentina which is a different task, but fully fit and firing ina different task, but fully fit and firing in a good mood. england are going to be a handful. so far, so good for england. they know with
their final good for england. they know with theirfinal group good for england. they know with their final group games against argentina and against france, tougher tests now lie in store. this is confirmation of how it looks in england's pool. argentina have a break. the french top to go to the quarterfinals. italy also have 10 points after two matches that's after they thrashed canada in fukuoka. like england they also scored seven tries. 48—7 the final score. and also like england they have much tougher games coming up in their pool, new zealand and south africa still to come. italy sitting pretty for now — they've got the springboks in 8 days' time. ii's a rest day tomorrow injapan. go the rugby union pages on the bbc sport website for details of ireland, wales and scotlands next matches.

the derby captain and republic of ireland defender richard keogh is out for the rest of the season with a serious knee injury. he was involved in a car crash on tuesday night in which two of his teamates were arrested for drink driving. here's our reporter colin. richard keogh is the definition of a clu b richard keogh is the definition of a club stalwart, seven years at derby county, so many ups and downs, now the club captain but late on tuesday night it all came crashing down. he is extremely down, of course, because he realises what is going on for him, personally, and as a responsible player, as a captain in the team, that he is not part of the tea m the team, that he is not part of the team any more. he topped earlier, you left it to senior players to ta ke
you left it to senior players to take responsibility —— you talked earlier. does he feel he should have been the person responsible for making sure nothing happens?” been the person responsible for making sure nothing happens? i think he feels responsible. senior players a lwa ys he feels responsible. senior players always have to step up. this was the aftermath of the incident that has caused so much trauma and led to drink—driving charges for young players tom lawrence and mason bennett, and a message from the club they cannot condone the actions of a small group of players. it is very fresh and ongoing investigation about what exactly happened. but disciplinary matters and consequences, there will be for the players involved. we have already been told those consequences will at least include a lot more work with derby county's community trust and i am sure there are a bit more beyond
that as the investigation goes on. interestingly, they would not say whether the players were suspended for this weekend pass crucial match with birmingham city. the manager said it was his decision and he would be looking at that closely indeed tomorrow, but it has been a pretty horrible couple of days by them here. —— for them here. australian tennis player nick kyrgios has been given a 4 month suspended ban. tour chiefs say he has shown a pattern of abuse towards officials and spectators over the last 12 months. the ban will be imposed if he commits another offence with six months. this is kyrgios's reaction, posting this on social media: "i guess i'm on my best behaviour for six months." quick look at the day's other headlines.. after winning his first singles match since a hip operation in january, andy murray has been knocked out of the zhuhai championships in china. he lost in three sets to alex de minaur.
judd trump's15—match winning run has ended. he was beaten by fellow englishman joe perry, 5—2 in the last 16 of the china snooker championship in guangzhou. the golf championship began today. it was played over three courses. justin rose was in sync withjustin timberlake, justin rose was in sync withjustin timberla ke, the justin rose was in sync withjustin timberlake, the singer showing he is no stranger to the sport. finishing on four under. nigel benn last fought in 1996, the dark destroyer was a two weight world champion, now at the age of 55 he is going to step back into the ring facing another former world champion, sakio bika, in november in birmingham. emma jones reports. the fittest 55—year—old man on
earth. that is how nigel benn is being built as he confirmed he is getting back into the ring just one more time. i am fit, i don't mind the training now. i was suffering with something i cannot break, now i am ina with something i cannot break, now i am in a good place. he was a world champion in two weight classes before his final fight until now, almost 23 years ago. the british boxing control said they were not license his comeback because of his age and how long he was away from the sport. instead it has been sanctioned by the british and irish boxing authority. we have paramedics at ringside, ambulances and portable brain scan unit at ringside. we have gone the extra mile, it does not get better than that. we will ensure his safety. there is an element of risk, boxes going into the ring know that. two people aware of the risk are his
sons, connor and harley. there is a concern, there is the danger of the sport itself, getting hit at that age, who knows? but he has the fire in the belly. this is about himself. when it comes from such a... from his heart, it is only right you let him do what he wants to do, it is passion. as for him, he says there's one last fight is not to make money. it is not about that, it is me having closure for myself. where you have been where i have been, you have been where i have been, you have had the bentleys and ferraris, you have had all this, that did not bring me happiness. he was known as the dark destroyer. 23 years later he says he should now be called nigel benjamin button then.|j he says he should now be called nigel benjamin button then. i am back, i am nigel benjamin button then. i am back, iam ready, one more nigel benjamin button then. i am back, i am ready, one more time. headway the brain injury charity have expressed their concerns saying
that boxing at any age is an inherently dangerous sport. earlier i spoke to the boxing writer and broadcaster steve bunce who thinks benn has taken on too tough an opponent. he is fighting a man who only two and half three years ago was fighting for world titles, fighting the best in the world. sakio bika might be a0 plus but he is still a handful, so much so if i was a matchmaker i would keep him away from my younger boxers who are competing in britain. he is coming backin competing in britain. he is coming back in what is a hard fight. the bottom line test here is the one we will not know. when he is let alone in the ring with sakio bika, and thatis in the ring with sakio bika, and that is how much his punch resista nce that is how much his punch resistance is left. not his desire orstamina, he has resistance is left. not his desire or stamina, he has already been described as the fittest 55—year—old man in the world and that is probably the truth, but it is when
you start throwing punches and your resista nce you start throwing punches and your resistance declines with each year of your boxing life, not with each year of your natural life. we had no idea what is going to happen 23 yea rs idea what is going to happen 23 years later. he might go over it from the first punch, a lightjab, because he is not used to being hit are not used to being hit often. you can't return to this, suddenly get back on the bike, you can't suddenly pick upa back on the bike, you can't suddenly pick up a racket angle play a game of mixed doubles. you don't play boxing, it is a vicious dangerous sport and i have a feeling we might find out very early that nigel benn, terrific fighter that he was, has made a big mistake. an incredible cricket season is finally over, fitting that the county championship went down to the final day. essex are champions after a draw at their rivals somerset. somerset forfeited their second innings to try and force the win they needed for a first title in their history but they couldn't get the 10 wickets they needed
in the short time left in the match. a draw giving essex their second title in three years. henry moeran was at taunton for us. a second county championship title for essex in the space ofjust three yea rs. for essex in the space ofjust three years. somerset, meanwhile, the long wait to get their hands on a trophy goes on. coming into this final date needed a miracle for the hosts to get them the win to get the title but despite the efforts of jack reacher, five wickets for him, it was sir alistair cooke that held firm in the second innings having been put under pressure, that meant essex will be heading back to chelmsford with the trophy. somerset will be frustrated. this match has been badly affected by the weather. they will have to wait till next year to see if they can break their duck but for essex, these elevations will begin. after 26 years at somerset that match marked the end of the former england opener marcus trescothick‘s career so next season darren stevens
will be out on his own as the oldest professional player in the country. he's just signed a new contract that will take him beyond his aath birthday. kent had originally decided to let him go but a spectacular late season run of form made them change their mind. patrick gearey reports. summer is into its final innings and cricket is about to hide beneath the cove rs. cricket is about to hide beneath the covers. 0ne cricket is about to hide beneath the covers. one player refuses to accept ot in's advance. i am darren stevens andi ot in's advance. i am darren stevens and i am a3. ot in's advance. i am darren stevens and i am 43. next season stevens will become england's oldest professional cricketer. in the last couple of games he has looked like one of the best. aa5 runs. kent were going to release him but now they have given him a new contract. he will be kept out of the house at least one more summer. happy wife, happy life. a lot of questions have been asked about why i am carrying on. ifeel like i have a lot to give any big thing is i still have
