2007 World Cup

World champions England scored 11 tries as they crushed Wales in Cardiff to make it two successive Women’s Six Nations wins this season.

Wales had no answer at the Arms Park in front of a 4,000-strong crowd as England’s women followed up last weekend’s Twickenham victory over France by blitzing their opponents 63-0.

Worcester wing Lydia Thompson led the way by scoring three tries, while Amy Wilson-Hardy and Danielle Waterman both crossed twice.

And the one-sided success was further underlined through touchdowns from Amy Cokayne, Natasha Hunt, Katy McLean and Sarah Hunter, with Emily Scarratt kicking four conversions.

England led 36-0 at half-time, and it was always damage-limitation for a Wales team outgunned in every key department.

Meanwhile France defeated Scotland 55-0 on Saturday evening. It took France 17 minutes to break the deadlock when number 8, Safi N’Diaye crashed over in the right corner.

Ten minutes later it was winger Shannon Izar who used her pace to run in a second try. Two became three when second row Lenaig Corson broke through the Scottish cover to touch down under the posts for a 17-0 half-time lead.

Two minutes after the restart, Élodie Poublan scored France’s fourth try before winger Elodie Guiglion stretched their lead to 29-0 eight minutes into the half.

Le Pesq Jade added a brace while Caroline Ladagnous and Camille Cabalou rounding off the victory with a try each.
