As you can imagine, fans were raving about this phenomenal solo performance.
Can’t think of a pro player who’s made such massive improvements, mid career, as Jonny May.

Jonny May celebrates like this whether he scores a wonder try for England or whether his Mum says it’s chicken nuggets for tea. Let’s all be a bit more Jonny May ❤🌹#ENGvIRE pic.twitter.com/0PnqqJV5KB

Incredibly, despite two brilliant first-half tries – it was Maro Itoje who stole the MOTM award after an exceptional showing at Twickenham with many fans believing he’s a certainty to start for the Lions next year.
An efficient win for @EnglandRugby! The England pack is ruthlessly good against a good Irish pack. Big shout for @maroitoje. Jonny May’s second try is out of this world! Just like his moustache! pic.twitter.com/R4DOtaItRt

Maro Itoje, world class. Consistently world class.
Not sure why he doesn’t get the respect from some rugby fans, maybe because he plays for Saracens and brings so much energy, but he is phenomenal.
Unbelievable athlete and rugby player. #ENGvIRE #AutumnNationsCup

Maro Itoje is living rent free inside Ireland’s heads I see #ENGvIRE

The man is a machine. Feel sorry for the second tier players having to deal with him this season for Sarries

It wasn’t all gushing praise for the victors. One incident in the second half really got under the skin of some fans with England captain, Owen Farrell, the culprit on this occasion with a cynical obstruction on a chasing Irish defender.
Farrell needs to cut this stuff out of his game. Completely unnecessary and just riles people up pic.twitter.com/BZpibVqKpf

Users on social media were less than pleased with this piece of foul play. We’ve had to gloss over some of the really savage reaction…
I know you shouldn’t hate people you don’t know but I really have an irrational dislike for Owen Farrell 🌚

Even when England are hammering someone, Owen Farrell can’t help himself from behaving like a wang 🤣

Owen Farrell is a dirty fucker. You know he was that kid at school that was just annoying as fuck too.

Owen Farrell is world class at being a shithouser #ENGvIRE
