The scoreboard confirms England's biggest ever win
Romania's rugby union coach Mircea Paraschiv has quit after his team's record 134-0 defeat by England on Saturday.

The win at Twickenham set a new world record for the margin of victory in international rugby.

"I have decided to resign as Romania's coach," said Paraschiv on Monday.

"I see no new challenge in going on as the national team's coach any more."

Meanwhile, the president of the cash-strapped Romanian Rugby Union, Dumitru Mihalache, announced he would not run for a new term at elections scheduled later in November.
