Paul Nuttall scores dramatic injury-time try as England pip Italy

UKIP leader Paul Nuttall has scored a dramatic injury-time try as England demolished Italy at Twickenham.

Nuttall, who also famously scored a drop-goal to win England the 2003 World Cup, scored in the second minute of injury time to bring the score to 36-15.

He told WalesOnCraic:

“It was a tough game but I’m glad that we came through in the end. Italy were a tough package and really stood up to us. But that’s what the Six Nations is all about. You have to work for everything in this tournament and after the disappointment of the by-election results earlier in the week, it’s nice to have something to put a smile on my face.”

England coach Eddie Jones said:

“Paul has been a fantastic player for us for 40 years now. We can always rely on him to come up with the goods in the end. We did think that we were going to lose him to the sport of golf as he’s recently won the Open but thankfully, he saw sense and came back into the fold.”

Paul is planning to celebrate the win by recording a hit single with Elvis.
