England kicked off their June International series with a record 57-26 victory over the Barbarians at Twickenham with winger Chris Ashton scoring a hat-trick of tries.
England were playing without a host of their top players as the Premiership final was staged at the same venue yesterday which ruled out all players from new title holders Harlequins and former champions Leicester Tigers.
The Rugby World Cup's joint top tryscorer Ashton rediscovered the form he showed in the 2010 Six Nations when he burst on to the international scene.
Aside from Ashton's hat-trick Jonathan Joseph scored a brace of tries and Dylan Hartley, Christian Wade and Richard Wigglesworth also crossed the whitewash.
England centre and flyhalf Owen Farrell took an early knock when he tackled by Casey Laulala and missed two penalty kicks but recovered to kick one seven conversions to add to his early penalty which put England into the lead shortly after kick off.
While the match does not award the players with international caps Ashton's hat-trick will be boost for England who tour South Africa for three tests next month.
England showed a lot of promise with a willingness to run the ball but there will be concerns that they allowed the Barbarians to score four tries, two of which were scored by former All Black Mils Muliaina and one by former England captain Mike Tindall.
The match did little for coach Stuart Lancaster's selection headache as to who he should start against South Africa at flyhalf after Farrell's early wobble and Toby Flood's absence from the Premiership final die to injury.
The England training squad will be joined by 18 of the players who contested yesterday's final.
