Tempers flared between the sides during the game
Ireland A ran in six tries to claim a convincing win over England Saxons in the Churchill Cup final in Denver.
Declan Kidney's side led 20-12 at the break in the searing heat thanks to tries by Devon Toner and Isaac Boss.
And a try 24 seconds after the restart by Sean Cronin stretched the Irish advantage further.
Felix Jones, Johne Murphy and John Muldoon all crossed after that before Tom Varndell had the last word with a consolation effort for the Saxons.
Jonathan Sexton added three penalties for the Irish and converted three tries with Fergus McFadden adding the extras for another two.
Ben Woods also crossed for the Saxons in the second half with Stephen Myler kicking four penalties.
"England are a very good team - I'm not going to say we smashed them in every facet," said Kidney. "But we had the hunger."
Saxons captain Phil Dowson said: "We've taken a pasting. I'm a little bit shocked - we'll have to have a look at video but it's not going to be pretty in terms of set-pieces."
With the score at 39-17 Danny Cipriani came on, but the Wasps fly-half made little impact.
